Two Headed Rep presents
two plays created in response to Hrotsvitha of Gandersheim’s Dulcitius

THE COLLISION and What Came After, or, GUNCH!
By Nadja Leonhard-Hooper
Directed by Lily Riopelle

&

THE MARTYRDOM of the Holy Virgins Agape, Chionia, and Irena, by Hrotsvitha the Nun of Gandersheim, as told throughout the last millennium by the men, women, scholars, monastics, puppets, and theater companies (like this one) who loved her. Or: DULCITIUS
New text by Amanda Keating
Translation by Lizzie Fox
Directed by Molly Clifford

A mysterious object falls from the sky, bringing death, destruction, and…unsettling changes to a group of pious nuns in Nadja Leonhard-Hooper’s brand new play The Collision and What Came After, or, GUNCH! commissioned specifically to be performed alongside a raucously comedic adaptation of Hrosvitha of Gandersheim’s Dulcitius.

Together, these plays explore how we make meaning from the stories we inherit and how to make new meanings when old stories fail us.
