The Skriker
The people who brought you Miller’s Playing For Time, Mamet’s The Poet and The Rent and Stoppard’s Jumpers now offer you the chance to travel to the fairy underworld of Contemporary London, England. Josie has murdered her newborn and a pregnant Lily has run away from home; but their troubles have only just begun when they meet The Skriker: an ancient fairy and shape-shifter who grants wishes (for a price!) This multi-disciplinary performance includes animation, dance, music, light and shadow to blend the naturalism, horror and magic realism in The Skriker. Churchill weaves a distressing and relevant tale that is sure to be an opulent theatre experience!

Directed by
Alix Sobler
