"All things beautiful and cruel circle me, the bees and the dragonflies."
When the fairy kingdom mingles with mortals, wishes are granted, but only at a price. This spring the beasts present the work of two celebrated gay playwrights who explore the sometimes savage and often hilarious nature of love. Born in different countries, in different centuries, Federico Garcia Lorca and Harry Kondoleon are worlds apart; yet each creates haunting worlds filled with unexpected shifts in tone, and where magical and often startling transformations hide beneath every leaf. Featuring The Fairy Garden by Harry Kondoleon and The Love of Don Perlimplin for Belisa in the Garden by Federico Garcia Lorca, translated by James Graham-Lujan and Richard L. O’Connell.
