The iconic Joan Didion’s caustic, seminal 1979 essay The White Album – chronicling the American counter-culture’s violent, spiraling decline in the 1960s – is brought to the stage by experimental theatre director, writer and acclaimed large-scale installation artist Lars Jan.

Obie-winning actor Mia Barron delivers Didion’s highly theatrical text in full as a parallel performance unfolds behind her.

Twenty-five young audience members participate in vignettes juxtaposing the social upheaval of the 1960s with present day injustice and institutional violence.

Performance and art lab Early Morning Opera’s staging expands Didion’s canonical essay into a brilliantly theatrical phantasmagoria of voices, dreams and nightmares.
