Beth Morrison Projects (National Sawdust group-in-residence) is the producer of this new work, which it co-commissioned with the venue. Composed by Rome Prize-winner Keeril Makan, with music direction by Evan Ziporyn and a libretto and direction by Jay Scheib, one of American Theater’s “Top 25 Directors Likely to Shape American Performance Over the Next 25 Years,” Persona is a provocative, highly cerebral, and artistically complex depiction of human frailty, cruelty, and identity.
