The Trinity River Plays Premieres at Dallas Theater Center

November 5-December 5, 2010
By Regina Taylor
Directed by Ethan McSweeny
Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre
Dallas Theater Center


Regina Taylor’s powerful new trilogy (Jarfly, Rain and Ghost(story)) explores the unique passages in one woman’s life journey. In Jarfly, a teenaged Iris Spears teeters on the brink of maturity when an event shatters her innocence—and changes her life forever.

In Rain, a 34-year-old Iris flees a collapsing marriage to return home to Texas and the comfort of her mother’s embrace, only to find that the once-solid ground has shifted beneath her feet.

And in Ghost(story), a surprise visit from her estranged husband forces Iris to confront the past and the ghosts that have continued to haunt her. The trilogy is inspired by the rhythm of the cicada—a part of Iris’ young life in the south—the insect that emerges every 17 years to take wing. The Trinity River Plays are presented as one continuous story in three acts. Contains some sexual situations and mature themes.

For ticket for The Trinity River Plays, contact the box office at the AT&T Performing Arts Center. or call 214.880.0202.
