In comes I, says Robbin to Bobbin. There were three Straw Bears and the little one said, rough music! Will the Phantom of the Opera feature in the Scottish play? This cold night will turn us all to fools and morris dancers: hocus pocus, and Faustus must be damned. There were three caskets, and only one contained the liar’s whetstone. Oh yes, there is a doctor to be found at the Hawk’s Well. Out, little spear, if herein thou be! What’s the time, Widow Twankey, at the Common Riding of the Valkyries? A knot, a knot! Waly waly wallflower in the eye of the sun, up and down and around the town. There were three oranges, my true love to see, but ’tis the foul fiend Flibbertigibbet. Surely he is a Puritan, for he has cast out Jack in the Green.

The Indian River Review

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 31, 2017

The Indian River Review is currently soliciting submissions for its fifth issue scheduled for publication in late spring 2018. The theme for this issue is home: home as place, as idea, as state of being. In a society that seems increasingly unrooted and atomized, does home still have its gravitational force and tug? Against the warp and disruption of the current tumult, does it persist? Has it devolved to a walled-off and gated insularity? Can we take it with us when we go? Does it belong to us or we to it?

Stages in Transition: South Asia and the Diaspora

Theater of South Asia and the diaspora is a rich topic for exploration, particularly in our current political climate, in which questions of cultural identity, citizenship, personal and cultural expression, movement between cultures and geographic borders are all at the forefront of public discourse globally. How do place and space, our understanding of home and belonging come to inflect the theater that we make?
