THE US PREMIERE OF 'SKIN TIGHT'

Genre: Drama
by Gary Henderson

This high-intensity tale of love, marriage and eroticism will play in the United States April 5-23.
Winner of all awards at the 1998 Edinburg Fringe Festival, Skin Tight premiered in 1994 at the Bats Theatre, where it played to packed houses. This work from New Zealand, inspired by Denis Glover's poem " The Magpies," tells the intimate story of a rural marriage, where Tom and Elizabeth engage in a violent and erotic dance of the union through an exhilarating feast of fighting, lovemaking and tenderness. The characters strip themselves, literally, to explore the ecstasy and pain of a passionate love affair.

We are committed to involving the spectrum of diverse and multi-abled voices in play selection, programs & internships, our artistic, production and volunteer staffs, and in our audience.
