07:30PM 07:30PM Performance: Knead by Mary Lynn Owen: School: Oxford College Department / Organization: Oxford College Building/Room: Tarbutton Performing Arts Center Cost: Free Contact Name: Danielle Dockery Contact Email: danielle.dockery@emory.edu The Lyceum Committee and Oxford Theatre are proud to present a special one night performance of Knead, written and performed by Oxford's own Mary Lynn Owen. In the wee hours, a woman bakes bread, determined that her mother’s incomprehensible recipe will finally work. But something is different about this night. The ingredients of time and memory keep interfering, and the bread-baking process – the kneading, rising, shaping, and baking, all in real time – becomes a journey into the unpredictability of, well, just about everything. What can you do when life doesn’t go according to the recipe? Owen, the granddaughter of Cuban immigrants on her mother’s side, mixes the ingredients of her life – love, loss, and Cuban food – into a night that rises and falls with loaves that somehow end up in the oven. Just like life – who knows how it will turn out? Originally developed as a project from the 3rd Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab and a semi-finalist for the 2017 O’Neill National Playwright’s Conference. Owen is an Atlanta-based theatre artist with a career spanning nearly 40 years. Suzi Award winner for Wit (Aurora Theatre) and The Little Foxes (Theatre in the Square). Other theater: The Glass Menagerie (Georgia Shakespeare Festival); Six Degrees of Separation, Kimberly Akimbo (Actor’s Express); Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue, Medea (Alliance Theatre); Dividing the Estate (Theatrical Outfit); The Clean House, Third (Horizon Theatre); The Last Night of Ballyhoo (Georgia Ensemble Theatre); Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again (Seven Stages), and numerous productions at Theatre Emory where, since 2002 she has been a faculty member of the University’s Theatre Studies Department. Knead, her first play, a recipient of the Alliance Theatre’s Reiser Artists Lab Award, was also selected as a semi-finalist for the 2017 O’Neill National Playwright’s Conference. Owen’s writing residencies include Cottages at Hedgebrook in Puget Sound, WA, and The Hambidge Center in Rabun Gap, GA.  This is an Oxford Studies event. This performance will be general seating; we recommend arriving early. + Oxford College Campus Events
