The Old Woman / Los Angeles

  • Royce Hall 340 Royce Dr Los Angeles, CA, 90095 United States of America (map)

Legendary theater maker Robert Wilson returns to the Center with a brand-new theatrical production The Old Woman, based on a story by Russian author Daniil Kharms. 

A brilliant, slyly political story written in the 1930s, The Old Woman stars world-renowned dancer and actor Mikhail Baryshnikov and film star Willem Dafoe. With echoes of Beckett in its deadpan narrative and humor, The Old Woman is one of the great works of the Russian avant-garde and tells the story of a struggling young writer.
