When Colossus Falls

The Riverview B&B hasn't seen a guest in ages. When one finally arrives, the inhabitants' lives are thrown into a tailspin as they try to figure out who she is, why she’s there, and what she's doing walking through the rubble from a burned down building across the street.

    An engaging character-driven drama with an intriguing touch of magical realism.

    A beautiful play about getting trapped in the comfort and pain of the past and about searching for a way out or a way forward. The relationships here are well-drawn and heartbreaking; the mystery that draws a guest into the world of the Riverview B&B, compelling and poetic.

    Eugenie's play won the WomenWorks competition for 2015. She came to The University of Tulsa campus for the residency associated with the award and was a wonderful collaborator. Eugenie did some very effective rewriting while on campus and offered a workshop for the campus-at-large that was greatly enjoyed by the participants. She has a distinctive voice and a very mature presence that helps everyone focus on opening out the play in the best way possible. She's a true artist.
