Two immigrant Romanian sisters struggle to make ends meet as they attempt to capture a piece of the American Dream. Kara is the provider. She has been working in a factory sending money home for her younger sister Mia, making it possible for her to come to America to finish up her PhD in biochemistry. Everything is working according to their plan. They have a nice house. Mia is making remarkable progress with her research on ants under the guidance of her professor, Adam Kohn. Kara spends her free time reading Tarot cards. And then the unthinkable happens...
"Always quirky, at times whimsical, funny in a dark kind of way, with a soft spot for the marginalized and the underdog, Saviana Stanescu's plays are everything you want a good play to be. They're personal but expansive, full of hope and despair, rooted in more than one culture, and they transcend race, class, and boundaries." - nytheatre.com

"[A] highly enjoyable play" - New Jersey Stage
"'Ants,'...deals with the defiance of natural laws and expected behavior in the insect and human worlds." - nj.com

I saw it at New Jersey Rep. Brilliant! Funny, smart, insightful, imaginative, provocative. This is the kinda stuff I want to see in theatres - bold and imaginative work.
