House Of Desires at the Storm Theatre
The Storm Theatre presents House Of Desires, by Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, opening at the Storm Theatre on the 11 Jan 2006, following previews from the 6 Jan and running through to the 28 Jan.
House Of Desires delivers romantic mayhem to the doorstep of brother and sister Don Pedro and Dona Ana who find themselves entangled in a comic mess: Don Pedro loves Dona Leonor who loves Don Carlos, who is fancied by Dona Ana but betrothed to Don Juan. The play is a bawdy, starry-eyed tale of confusion and mistaken identities rich with wily servants and groping suitors.
Written by a 17th century feminist, House Of Desires examines the idea of free will for women at a time when her worth was defined by societyï¿½s strict moral code. With honor and desire at stake, will the lovers' whims lead them to happiness?
House Of Desires cast, directed by Billie Allen, features Michael Cajigao, Amanda Cronk, Michael Daly, Christopher Kale Jones, Jamil Mena, Caitlin Mulhern, Jessica Myhr, Joshua Vasquez and Gabriel Vaughn.
The comedy has set design by Todd Edward Ivins, costumes by Erin Murphy and lighting by Michael Abrams.
