THE SERPENT    By Jean Claude Van Itallie    

Directed by Amy Sass






January 28, 2005 – February 19, 2005   

Eighth Street Studios – Berkeley, CA



"The East Bay's newest theater company, Ragged Wing Ensemble, marks its debut with a flawless and spirited production of Jean Claude Van Itallie's allegory of lost innocence and the problem of evil…expertly choreographed by Amy Sass...a lithesome and charismatic ensemble morphs in and out of arrestingly beautiful, playful scenes…"

- The SF Bay Guardian


"Ritual, ceremony, performance, stylized storytelling: whatever you want to call it, The Serpent is a solid offering from an intriguing new company that promises to add some juice to the East Bay theater scene."

- East Bay Express 2005


"Ragged Wing creates a smooth yet ecstatic kinesis, gestures and voices falling into place…like the pistons of a driving engine."

- Berkeley Daily Planet


"Sass’s creative direction makes for a visual and aural treat."

- SF Station
