Selkie: Theatre Uncut

We have it in our power to begin the world over again.

-Thomas Paine

scissorsPlease join Selkie for the US premiere of Fragile and Dalgety, two provocative plays by award-winning Scottish playwright David Greig, at the Ice House Tonight series as SELKIE: THEATRE UNCUT over Memorial Day weekend, May 22-24!

Directed by George B. Miller, and starring Joseph Ferraro, Brandon Lay, and Melissa McKenna these raucously funny, startling, and powerful plays about the worlds we create – and destroy – are produced in conjunction with the UK’s exciting “Theatre Uncut” project (www.theatreuncut.com).

“What marks theatre out from other art forms, I think, is that it’s essentially a distilled form of empathy; we have a need to understand and probe the world around us, and create stories from what we see.”  — Hannah Price, Co-Artistic Director, Theatre Uncut

In Fragile, Jack has a midnight epiphany – and a radical plan to save his mental health support center.  This visceral, startling, and beautiful roller-coaster-ride of a play features two roles, one actor – and many voices.

In Dalgety, two coppers in the sleepy suburban sprawl of Dalgety Bay just want to get home to the London Olympics (on TV) and a nice bottle of wine – whilst on the exercise bike, of course.  Until the Naked Rambler shows up in the office with – a deer?  The call of the wild is about to get pretty primal in the Scottish ‘burbs!
