Why Liliya Why

By Annalise Cain

Directed by Lauren Diesch

When Liliya finds herself at her lowest, she must return to the home she flew away from so many years before and a m'other she never wished to see again. Can she repair herself in the same place that originally broke her? A twisted take on the Rapunzel story, starring a series of organs, a worm who lives under a bed, and a couple of great falls.

Now in its eleventh year, At First Sight will feature two new plays by M.F.A. playwrights Annalise Cain and David Davila. The Festival’s culminating weekend includes the popular Undergrad Shorts and a series of panels hosted by M.F.A. Dramaturgy students. Students are joined by the Katy Bigge Kestner Festival Guest Artists, industry professionals who provide their insight and expertise throughout the weekend.

Running Time: 1 hour and 45 minutes
