Wickie Stamps (National Queer Arts Festival)
FUGUE STATE, from Wickie Stamp's Southern gothic work-in-progress, revolves around the crimes of (and against?) the notorious Dr. Prince Beckmana psychiatrist and former head of the unbelievably creeptastic Zeboiim prison. Follow Francy MacLeish, a frequently medicated ex-mental patient, as she "investigates" the doctor's gruesome trail. Meet the case's major suspects: Jackson Beckman, a defrocked psychiatrist and son of Prince, Jackson's illegitimate convict brother Dakin, and Francy's sister M MacLeisha loveable anti-psychiatry, sexually transgressive, revenge-oriented anarchist. FUGUE STATE's characters are guaranteed to charm youand creep you out.
