Intimacy, identity, power, life, death.
A fall, a push, a murder.
A sideways glance at the roles we play
to convince ourselves we are(n’t)
who we think we are.
If Caryl Churchill and Sarah Kane were to have a literary baby,
This play would be that baby.
A weird, wacky baby.
Featuring Colleen Baum and Latoya Cameron, designed by Dan Evans (set), Phillip R. Lowe (costumes) and Jesse Portillo (lighting), directed by Jerry Rapier.
Funded in part by The David Ross Fetzer Foundation for Emerging Artists.
