Ruth Margraff


ANGERFLYRuth Margraff showed her new play, ANGER/FLY at the Trap Door Theater from May 24 through June 30.  ANGER/FLY deconstructed and expanded the story of a perfect little town that erupts in a violent riot set off when all the husbands simultaneously find flies in their soup. Margraff has been called one of America’s most singular and “daring theater artists” (C. Svich, Divine Fire). She is known for an “audaciously original” (Moscow Times) use of poetic language that provides “layer after layer of richly textured emotion…and imminent danger” (Dallas Morning News). Read more.
