By Ödön von Horváth
in a new version by Duncan MacMillan
Directed by Kim Kerfoot '18
Don Juan is back from the War and Berlin is crumbling. After years of abstinence, the Don is ready for more of the debauchery that made his name, but amidst political and economic upheaval he finds himself increasingly at odds with the man he used to be.

Though I am deeply saddened to not be a part of this project, I am pleased that I have completed my 50 weeks as an Equity Membership Candidate (EMC) and will soon be a proud member of Actor's Equity.
