“Still life with Iris”

This adventurous show will center around one simple concept most people can relate to: home.

Iris ends up being determined the “best” in their land and is taken by the Great Goods to an island to be their daughter. They remove all of her memoires from her coat in order to help her cope with her new living situation. Witness the journey of Iris rediscovering her past and as she finds out where home really is. April 6-8 at 7:30 PM and April 9 at 2:00 PM.
