Willa just can’t take it anymore! She feels boxed in! She wants to WEAR POWERFUL SUITS! Her apartment is infested with ants – her WHOLE LIFE is infested with ants! Willa is ATTACKED ON ALL SIDES! One day Willa receives a lump of clay. But not an ordinary lump – this clay is ALIVE!  Willa is transformed; first into mother of a golem daughter and then into Mayor of New York City!  This is a golem story. But like any Golem story, chaos reigns!

Lisa Clair Group, in association with Immediate Medium and in collaboration with New Georges, presents Willa’s Authentic Self, a musical, monstrous and maximalist re-imagining of the ancient Jewish Golem myth. Written by Lisa Clair and directed by Shannon Sindelar, this world premiere explores how the desire to create can lead to the transformation of our communities.
