Hurricane Diane has landed in town with a bang, and I’d advise you NOT to evacuate, but to go get wet and windblown! She’s landed at the New York Theatre Workshop in Madeleine George’s bitingly funny play (co-produced by WP Theater) about the pissed-off god Dionysus who is living as a permaculture gardener in Vermont named Diane (Becca Blackwell).
Co-produced by WP Theater, New York Theatre Workshop continues its 2018-2019 Off-Broadway season with Hurricane Diane, written by Pulitzer Prize finalist Madeleine George and directed by Tony Award nominee Leigh Silverman.

Meet Diane, a permaculture gardener dripping with butch charm. She’s got supernatural abilities owing to her true identity—the Greek god Dionysus—and she's returned to the modern world to gather mortal followers and restore the Earth to its natural state. Where better to begin than with four housewives in a suburban New Jersey cul-de-sac? Hurricane Diane is a hilarious evisceration of the blind eye we all turn to climate change and the bacchanalian catharsis that awaits us, even in our own backyards.
