The Waste Land
May 15 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5 – $50
T.S. Eliot’s famous poem “The Waste Land” comes to life in this world premiere adaptation for the stage that speaks to the current crisis caused by the pandemic. Featuring award-winning actor and playwright Lisa Ramirez in a one-person performance, Oakland Theater Project’s drive-in production gives urgent expression to the mysterious blend of personal, spiritual, psychological, national and existential threads Eliot weaves together in his masterwork. ”The Waste Land” combines an outdoor stage under Oakland’s skyline, dynamic video projection, and an immersive theatrical soundscape to embody Eliot’s exploration of uncertainty and loss in the midst of a changing world.
Due to COVID-19, Oakland Theater Project’s 2021 Season will be presented as Drive-In Theater performances. Audiences can experience the power of live performance from the safety of their own vehicles, with the sounds of the production transmitted over FM radio.
