The Successful Life of 3 playfully examines the intersecting lives and relationships of two men and the woman they share. Its characters are nameless archetypes; He, She and 3, who careen through ten episodic vaudevillian scenes. Mud is grounded in realism and extends 3’s themes of gender roles and disenfranchisement to a dramatic climax. The characters in 3 escape into self-delusion and consumerism, while in Mud, they must become conscious and confront their reality. 

Maria Irene Fornés writes with truth from a woman’s point of view. Dubbed by many critics as the greatest least acknowledged female playwright of our time, she is a pioneering playwright of the Off-Off Broadway movement. Born in Havana in 1930, Fornés moved with her mother to the U.S. in 1945. From 1954 to 1957 she lived in Paris, where she painted, and saw Roger Blin’s production of Waiting for Godot, which inspired her to become a playwright. Back in New York, she designed for the theatre and lived with her partner Susan Sontag, to whom she dedicated TSLO3. Her over forty plays include The Danube, Fefu and her Friends, Sarita and The Conduct of Life.  Fornés was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for And What of the Night? She has won 9 Obie awards; her first for TSLO3 and one for Sustained Achievement. Since 2006, she has been hospitalized with Alzheimer’s, and turns 85 this May.

“Every time I listen to Fornés, or read or see one of her plays, I feel this: she breathes, has always breathed, a finer, purer, sharper air.” – Tony Kushner
