December 2013

San Jose Repertory Theatre Emerging Artist Lab


Written and Directed by Caitlyn Tella 

Produced in collaboration with Sarah Flanagan

Melinda Marks as Persephone

Ronald Feichtmeir as Demeter and Sylvia Plath 


Persephone is an internet-addicted teenage poetess struggling through 

the seasons of her sometimes-alive, sometimes-dead psyche. When the internet envelopes Persephone, she disappears to a special hell where the grass is always green and the sky so blue. Defeated by a search for her missing child, Perephone's mother, Demeter, rips apart her garden then doubles in an underworld appearance as Sylvia Plath. 


Presented in conjunction with San Jose Repertory Theatre's Snow Queen.
