Is the future worth the past?

. May 18, 2012.

The New Theatre Project continues to exercise theatrical innovation with the new work Fugue by Audra Lord. The title, in psychology, refers to a period of loss of awareness of one's identity, and can usually be traced psychologically in people who suffer from hysteria or epilepsy. In this play, the characters James, Julie, Tina and Princess Stephanie are forced to piece together their memory loss after a traumatic event. As they remember their collective and individual identities they arrive at a crossroads — deciding whether to continue to decipher the tragedies of the  past or to move on to the future. Performances take place at the Mix Studio Theater December 2-18 with shows every Friday & Saturday at 8pm and Sundays, December 11&18 at 8pm. {Special pay-what-you-can previews are Thursday, November 30 & Friday, December 1 at 8pm.} $10 students/$15 general. 130 W. Michigan Ave., Ypsilanti. 734-645-9776. www.thenewtheatreproject.org
