By SAVIANA STANESCU

Directed by JORDAN FRIEND

January 19 - February 10

ABOUT

*DC-Area Premiere*

Presented as part of the Women's Voices Theatre Festival
 

Winner of the New York Innovative Theatre Award, Romanian-born playwright Saviana Stanescu’s Waxing West turns an immigrant’s pursuit of the American Dream into a darkly funny modern fable. Moving and absurd, Stanescu’s play follows Romanian cosmetologist Daniela, who travels to New York to marry a lonely computer programmer she has never met. As she relives her memories both back home and in America, Daniela is haunted by the spirits of Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu and his wife, who have returned from the dead as vampires with a knack for cultural commentary. This comic yet socially and politically relevant drama journeys between Romania and New York, between past and present, between the American Dream and the American nightmare. Will Daniella be able to escape the ghosts of her past to move on?
