Eve Theatre Company presents
20th Century Blues
by Susan Miller
Eve Theatre Company starts its eighth season with 20th Century Blues by Obie Award and Susan Smith Backburn Prize winner, Susan Miller. In 20th Century Blues, four women meet once a year for a ritual photo shoot, chronicling their changing and aging selves as they navigate love, careers, children and the complications of history. But when these private photographs threaten to go public, relationships are tested, forcing the women to confront who they are and how they will deal with whatever lies ahead.
Miller is a writer for stage, screen and new media. She won her first Obie Award for Nasty Rumors And Final Remarks. A Map Of Doubt And Rescue won the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and the Pinter Prize for Drama. She won a second Obie Award, as well as a shared Blackburn Prize, for her one-woman play, My Left Breast, which premiered at the Actors Theatre Humana Festival of New American Plays, and which she has performed throughout the country.

Set design is by Kathryn Spivey Deckard, lighting design is by Nick Dent and the production is stage managed by Brandi Hornbuckle.
