Steven Dietz’s piece is the first play for young audiences to receive the Kennedy Center’s Fund for New American Plays Award. “Still Life with Iris” is a fantastical adventure which centers on a little girl’s search for the simplest of things: home. Iris lives with her mom in the land of Nocturno—a magical place in which the workers make, by night, all of the things we see in the world by day. Also, in Nocturno, memories do not reside in people’s minds but instead are kept in their coats (called ‘Past Coats’). Iris is taken from her home and only has a button left of her ‘Past Coat’ to remind her of home. The play follows her and her friends including 11 year-old Mozart, and Annabel Lee as she searches for home.
