Immersive Proust at Yale in the 80's?
December 28, 2012 9:51 PM   Subscribe

In the mid-80's (1983-1985?) I saw a play adapted from Proust's Remembrance of Things Past at Yale. It took place in a house on Hillhouse Avenue, and the audience followed characters around the house; multiple events transpired in different rooms. Who wrote the adaptation, has it every been mounted again, and where could I find the text of the play?

This doesn't sound quite right, but maybe? You might try contacting its creator, Michael Rush, since presumably he might have been paying attention to other Proust productions around that time.

The YDN is only archived up to 1981 so far, but it certainly will be completed someday. Until then, I suggest contacting Yalies such as Manuscript & Archives, the theater department, or the Dramat historian.

Mary Zimmerman produced something called Eleven Rooms of Proust that debuted much later and in a different city, but depending on why you're asking that might give you a lead...
