The Scavengers
The Scavengers is a new play by Eric John Meyer. It tells the story of two brothers who try to escape from the world, but cannot escape each other.

Tanner has brought Victoria to his father's beach house as part of a game she likes to play getting random guys to kidnap her. It's how she lets off steam between modeling gigs. For Tanner, it's a last ditch effort to make something of his life. Victoria seems to think he has what it takes to become a model too, and she's promised to introduce him to her all-powerful manager.

But the fantasy goes sour when they discover that Tanner's younger brother Calvin is also hiding out at the house. He's given up on grad school, he refuses to eat, and he also refuses to leave. As the brothers battle over their father's house, Victoria gleefully plays alternating favorites until the game stops being fun.

Playwright Eric John Meyer and director Hondo Weiss-Richmond have been collaborating since 2010. Their work on the Scavengers began early in 2011. While in residence at IRT, Hondo and Eric will rehearse and mount a workshop production of The Scavengers within a ten-day period. This will be the first time this version of the play gets explored on its feet, after previous readings at The Flea Theater and elsewhere.

Featuring Lauren Ferebee, Parrish Hurley, Richard Lovejoy and Ted Schneider*
