About Merrily, Merrily
Spicy Witch Productions presents Merrily, Merrily, a world premiere play by SWP 2018 Writer-in-Residence Iris Dauterman, paired with Pedro Calderón de la Barca’s fantastical Spanish Golden Age play La vida es sueño or Life Is But a Dream, translated from Spanish to English for Spicy Witch by Shawn Morgenlander. Merrily, Merrily, inspired by de la Barca's Spanish Golden Age classic, is set in a world where international adoption morphs into isolation and clinical diagnoses. Centered around a family struggling to reconnect despite prolonged estrangement, Ms. Dauterman's play dives into the gulf between internal perception and external expression. Together, these plays will probe the recesses of our self-constructed bubbles and encourage us to judge the subjectivity of our own perceptions.
