Andrea at Under St Mark'

FRIGID New York presents Andrea, written and performed by Allison Landa, at Under St Mark's from 12 - 18 Mar 2007.

Andrea is based on Landa�s (playwright) teaching stint in the Czech Republic. Eager to escape a small town and a stifling job, she went house-hunting in Prague. There she met Andrea, a chain-smoking Bostonian with an axe to grind and a room to rent. The play recounts that meeting and the bitter, funny wake-up call it provided.

In 2004, the piece was adapted for the San Francisco television series 'Seeing Voices'. According to the show�s director, Brandon Nash: �Ms. Landa employs her characters to dramatize the question � to what extent are our failed relationships due to the ideas and prejudices that we accept, uncritically, about what relationships and other people should be?�
