“Richard Maxwell is one of the more adventurous theatre artists that this country has produced in decades.” – Hilton Als, The New Yorker
Isolde is inspired by the legend of Tristan and Isolde. In his play, the marriage of Patrick and Isolde appears happy. Patrick is the owner of a successful construction company and Isolde is a star actress. But Isolde finds herself increasingly unable to remember her lines. When she decides to build her dream house, her husband is eager to help. But, the project is jeopardized by Massimo, an award-winning architect whom Isolde hires.
Considered one of the most adventurous theatre artists that America has produced in decades, director, playwright and Guggenheim fellow, Richard Maxwell, has presented his work in over 16 different countries, winning two OBIE awards for separate works. Having studied acting at Illinois State University before joining the renowned Steppenwolf Theater in Chicago, Maxwell founded the Cook County Theater Department. Now as Artistic Director of the New York City Players, he has transformed the company into one of those rare theatres that subvert from within the conventions of American theatrical realism to create a theatre of the real, dominated by the performative dimension of dramatic art.
