With top-speed language, irreverent humor and dynamic physicality, Helen. is a story you know told in a way that you don’t. A wild adventure of paths crossing—of mothers and myths and memories and monsters—Caitlin George’s new play takes you on a journey whose experience is greater than the sum of its parts. Helen. invites you to leap into the unknown and revel in the unexpected.

In a world of tightly-bound conventions, the god of chaos watches three sisters talk about laundry, grout maintenance and family planning as they wait for their mother’s wake to end or a wedding to begin. Chaos undoes a button…and Helen, the youngest sister, tears loose from the constrictions of home, husbands and obligations to seek adventure. Again and again, we see Helen grasp at opportunities only to be flung back through time to where she started. As the time loops, accumulates and bursts, Helen is sent spiraling, banished from home, past the point of no return. A funny, feminist riff on a familiar myth, Helen. excavates our mothers from history and asks what the future holds for our daughters. La MaMa in association with En Garde Arts present The SuperGeographics' world premiere.
