THE SKRIKER by Caryl Churchill
Renowned playwright Caryl Churchill conjures
up a mesmerizing world in which we meet
The Skriker, a shapeshifting, wish-granting
faerie abroad in modernday London, making
dark mischief in her pursuit of two teenaged
runaways. Language, appearance and reality
are as slippery as the devil in a phantasmagoric
London haunted by gremlins and faeries.
Like the best fairy tales, The Skriker taps
into the darker passages of the unconscious,
invoking Shakespeare's Midsummer's Night Dream
and Hieronymus Bosch.
A superb company of Seattle Artists and
Performers create a work that is equal
parts stunning theatre, evocative dance and jaw-dropping visual art.
