Lise Bruneau


Lise is currently directing a Gilbert and Sullivan double-header at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop in Washington, DC. Immediately after this project opens she will begin directing a brand new play by Liz Maestri called Inheritance Canyon.

Inheritance Canyon focuses on the survivors of a mysterious disaster who face their greatest enemies — themselves — as they struggle for meaning within the restrictions of their new lives as government guinea pigs. Trapped in a canyon with unexplainable anomalies, their desires threaten the very fabric of time and space. The play opens on Sep 18 and runs through Oct 10, as Taffety Punk's contribution to the Women's Voices Theatre Festival.

This past spring she had a successful run as Jenny Diver in The Threepenny Opera at the Clarence Brown Theatre in Knoxville, TN. And just before that, she won raves for her direction of Taffety Punk's Riot Grrrls in an all grrrl production of Shakespeare's The Tempest.
