SEASON 10 | NOVEMBER 1997
By Migdalia Cruz
Directed by Barry Pineo
Presented by The VORTEX
In Migdalia Cruz's twisted riff on Beauty and the Beast, love is a hunt, a sport in which the object of one's affections is watched for, stalked, lured into one's lap, captured. Michael finds his dream mate in Citrona - a feral female whose head, face, and back are thick with masses of midnight black hair - and confines her in a cage, where he tries to make her love him. But Citrona loves Nena, the woman hired by Michael to bring her food. Nena, though, has eyes only for Michael. All are certain they can conquer the heart of the one they prize and so give chase.
