What I like most about ‘Rehearsing Desire’ is the way playwright Suzanne Trauth braids together multiple tales of conflict and passion.

The actors at Kiev Theatre Company portraying Blanche and Stanley struggle with their own troubled romantic history. An attempted coup in Moscow threatens the Soviet Union and unleashes the full power of the Ukrainian Independence rebellion raging in the streets outside the theatre. The main character, Charlotte, is doing her best to bring the production of ‘Streetcar’ to fruition but gets caught in the crosshairs of the personal and political turmoil.

That may sound heavy, but Trauth’s play is also fast-paced, funny, and deeply moving. My job as director is to bring out all of those dynamics for the audience.
