    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage Presents: House / Divided


    An incisive and bold examination of the American Dream, HOUSE / DIVIDED juxtaposes scenes from the current mortgage crisis with passages drawn from John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath, revealing how deeply the foreclosure crisis has affected and undermined our collective sense of American character and identity. In a set constructed from the bones of an actual foreclosed home, The Builders Association interweaves the Joads’ struggles on their way west with the perpetrators and participants in our own fast-moving, mediated and leveraged banking and housing systems. A highly immersive theatre experience, HOUSE / DIVIDED presents a shifting sense of place while tracing a line through American experience – a modern theatrical allegory of finding and losing refuge from Oklahoma all the way to our media-saturated, precariously financed global society.
