Spice Up Your Life With “Coriander” At E.B. Foote
According to our friend, the talented playwright Dr. T.M. Sell:
In the ancient Greek city-state of Aurora, where the living is above-average and housing prices are high, they might need a road to open up some new land.Â The road would have to pass through the Garden of the Oracle, raising the ire of people of faith.
Meanwhile, some folks favor a surface street; some a tunnel; and some a bridge.
In the middle of this is Coriander, chief administrator of the government, caught between the factions (including Tentacles, the developer, and the passionate radical Antagone), angry Gods, and the city council, led by Dimes, Draco and Ricotta, who are deep in the land of process.Â Â
And wither old King Freon?
The script and lyrics of Coriander are by T.M. Sell, with music by Nancy Warren.Â Martin J. Mackenzie directs, with choreography by Teresa Widner and costumes by Melissa Sell.
The cast includes:
- Scott Green as Coriander
- Eric Hartley
- Doug Knoop
