IN THE HOUSE OF THE MOLES (2004)

DESCRIPTION 

Terry Galloway’s In the House of the Moles is an absurdist, realistic, vaudevillian, queer take off of Hamlet. The play focuses on a family of four sisters and their late mother’s live-in male friend. To honor their mother’s memory, the sisters agree to perform their mom’s life work, her play, one last time.  Within this drama comes another morality play creating a play-within-the-play-within-the-play, and a show that both entertains and provokes.

In developing the script of the play, the playwright, Terry Galloway, initially workshopped it at the American Place Theater in New York City, the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, and The Rude Mechs in Austin, Texas. 2004 Tallahassee production was directed by Terry Galloway and Donna Marie Nudd.  In 2012, Galloway and Nudd spent two weeks at the DaDa Festival reworking the play with an international cast of performers with disabilities that culminated in a staged reading.
