Columbia University’s New Play Festival: “This Hair I Tear Is Mine”

Hair I Tear Yellow_Poster
July 22, 2:30 pm.


This Hair I Tear Is Mine is, quite simply, a play about being lost at sea. Less simply, stories, real and imagined, interlock across generations in this playful exploration of longing, identity, gender and art. What does it mean to seek connection in the face of abandonment? And is it even possible to find paradise – at sea or elsewhere?
