WOW Company is proud to present
You Belong To Me, a whirlwind journey of territorial obsession.
The play delves into the last days of three wars, spanning three
centuries. Moving from a southern Plantation at the end of the
Civil War to the end of the Nazi Holocaust, to the so-called “end
of major combat operations” in Baghdad, we follow a single
multi-ethnic family through several generations. Filled with
brutal laughs and tragic irony, You Belong To Me is an intensely
physical and musical rollercoaster ride of love, betrayal and
murder throughout the ages.
A soaring spectacle in its own right, You Belong
to Me, is the fifth installment of the Death of Nations Project,
an exciting and epic play cycle that has been produced internationally.
It is the product of Mr. Fox’s extensive collaboration
with Frank Raddatz (former dramaturg to Heiner Müller) and
the Forum Freies Theater in Duesseldorf Germany, Rody Vera of
the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Mr. Fox directs an 11-member
ensemble featuring noted German stage star Irene Christ and downtown
superstar Okwui Okpokwasili (Maria Del Bosco, Roaring Girl) and
International WOW Core members Harold Kennedy German, Carrie
Getman, Rory Sheridan, Robert Saietta, Beau Allulli and features
the virtuosic singing talents of Beth Griffith and Elizabeth
