Menorca by Robert Koon; Directed by Ann Filmer

On the island of Menorca, an archeological dig reveals human remains. Ollie (Alesandese), a woman of Basque origin, is there. She is with her students and James, her boss who is also her lover. In the Southern California desert, a border is being watched and guarded. Ollie is there too, with George, a Mexican- American border patrol agent, when more human bones are discovered. The present intrudes on the past as boundaries are set, crossed, and broken. All in the search for the identity of a woman misplaced.

Robert Koon’s plays include Vintage Red and the Dust of the Road (Jeff Award for New Work), St. Colm’s Inch and Odin’s Horse. Menorca was developed at the William Inge Theatre Festival. This is its world premiere.

Featuring original cast members from 2010 production: Kirsten D’Aurelio, Juan Gabriel Ruiz, Doug MacKechnie, Rachel Rizzuto plus others TBA.
