Through the perfect elixir of poetry, song, and dance The Feather Doesn’t Fall Far from the Wing — a new show written, composed and directed by Ayvaunn Penn — reimagines the fall of Lucifer described in scripture. She brings into fantasy a sister who ultimately takes Lucifer’s place as heaven’s new minister of music and a jealous brother who cannot be trusted to keep her secrets. This new work is being featured at Signature Theatre in May 2018 as a part of Columbia University’s Playwrights’ Thesis Festival.
This production is under the mentorship of Tony Award winning Broadway producer Ron Simons and the tutelage of Tony Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lynn Nottage.
