Nashville Repertory Theatre's production of Posterity, by Doug Wright. Live onstage at Tennessee Performing Arts Center's (TPAC) Johnson Theater, February 11th through 25th, 2017 with previews February 9th and 10th.
Take a world renowned Norwegian playwright, Henrik Ibsen, near the end of his career, and force him into a room with Norway’s favorite sculptor, Gustav Vigeland at the peak of his, whose ambitions require him to persuade a reluctant Ibsen to sit for him. Their battle begins. Debating what a person’s true legacy is – the work achieved during our life or how our loved ones remember us – unexpectedly teaches them something fundamental.
A startlingly beautiful play, these two explore a complex yet basic human question: who will I be to posterity? Initially developed with the support of Nashville Rep’s Ingram New Works Fellowship, this is the regional premiere of the play by Pulitzer and Tony winner Doug Wright. (This production contains partial, brief nudity.)
View Vigeland Park in Oslo, Norway where many of Vigeland's massive sculptures are on permanent display. The MONOLITH inspired some of the set design for Nashville Rep's production. NOTE: Many (most) of his sculptures are without clothing.
