The Knee Desires the Dirt
The Knee Desires the Dirt
Received the PEN Center USA West Playwriting Award!
By Julie Hebert.

Cast: 2m., 3w. Mesmerized by Xavier, her seductive (but dead) husband, Christine sleepwalks through her days only surfacing from her other-worldly relationship to deliver impassioned lectures to her college biology class. An inspired teacher, Christine's lessons explore the connections between body and mind—the utterances of a seeker trying to find meaning in science. Her carefully constructed world begins to collapse as her feisty, no-nonsense mother moves in, her teenage daughter experiments with sex, and her job is threatened. Just as Christine must wake to the very real demands of her life, Xavier shifts from dreamy lover to something more mysterious, more consuming. Pulled between two worlds, it takes her mind, her body and all in between to figure this one out. Single set.
