Elizabeth Is Going into the Ground
by University of Texas Theatre & Dance

Sep. 02 - Sep. 03, 2023

Four trees in the North Maine woods communicate through an underground network of roots and fungi. Four women, each struggling to come into her own in a nearby rural logging town, pass each other gifts by way of the town's one-car postal service. By blurring the boundary between human and tree, Elizabeth is Going into the Ground contemplates the communities of our forests, weaving a tale of love, resilience and old growth.
Directed by Jenny Lavery.
