"Howards End" by Caroline Hewitt, based on the novel by E.M. Forster, adapted by Caroline Hewitt, created by Autumn Dornfeld and Caroline Hewitt
Margaret and Helen Schlegel are savvy, intellectual women struggling to be heard over the stubborn dominance of England's early 20th century social strictures. When their lives intersect with two very different men, the sisters’ relationship to each other, themselves, and the way they see the world, changes forever. Four actors play 20 characters learning how to connect with each other in a landscape of changing values and alliances. Howards End will have its world premiere next spring as part of our 2019-2020 season!
