Praised by the Los Angeles Times for its “lushly offbeat and ferociously intelligent characters,” Dulcy Rogers’s solo show, I Am A Tree, delves into one woman’s quest to make sense of her family’s past and its effect on her future. After years of fearing for her own sanity in light of her mother’s madness and committal into a mental institution, protagonist Claire gives up questioning her icy father and goes in search of her three aunts for an explanation of their sister’s illness.
As both Claire and her trio of interlocutors, Rogers bestows each role with memorable life, personifying her heroine’s timidity and the aunts’ forceful eccentricities with aplomb. The play isn’t autobiographical, but it does have a connection to real-world history: as Rogers told the New York Daily News of the inspirations for two of the aunts, “one was the assistant to Eleanor Roosevelt and the second one grew up sitting at table with Milton Berle, Danny Kaye and all the stars of the golden era of Hollywood.” The show’s spare set of tree trunks, picture frames, and book-lined shelves suggest Claire’s tangled psyche and confused ideas of what living in nature might entail.
The beautiful red-brick walls of The Theatre at St. Clement’s shelter innovative Off-Broadway shows. Memorable productions from the theater’s four-decade history include the New York premiere of David Mamet’s American Buffalo and the world premiere of Sam Shepard’s La Turista.
