The Animals: Scenes from a Neighborhood
by University of Texas Theatre & Dance

Apr. 19, 2016

Carlo and Marissa, a married couple creeping into their late 40’s, decide to let naked desire break the surface of their typical suburban life. Anything alienating or order-making is gone – alarm clocks, blenders, (most) clothes, furniture—to make room for their bodies’ natural reactions and wants. As Carlo and Marissa conduct this radical experiment, an entire neighborhood shifts on its axis. Inspired by Chekhov’s "Uncle Vanya," "The Animals" explores carnal desires, existential longing, and the barriers separating even the most intimate partners.
