Created in an intense eight-month rehearsal process, Discarded Landscape premiered at the Performing Arts Chicago PAC/edge Fest at the Athenaeum Theater in Spring of 2005.
A mother's absence. A broken family. A return to the Hermitage creates disjointed memories of the past that begin to take over the present. Roles are reversed, stories are retold, and fiction replaces reality.
