Its Christmas Eve in New Orleans and two friends must navigate their usual territory of con men, cops, and the cruelty of fellow humans. In the company of fellow misfits and outcasts, Trinket Dugan and Celeste Griffin attempt to repair a friendship torn apart by unhealthy codependency and a string of hurt feelings. The popcorn is strung on the tree, the carolers are singing, and the booze is flowing. But will their friendship survive the ravages they inflict on each other? |
Directed by Ryan Mullins and staring Gigi Jennewein and Beverly Roche. Presented in partnership with the Indianapolis Propylaeum, November 9-18.
According to Mullins, "'The Mutilated' beautifully embraces a variety of socials outcasts and questions whether or not they deserve the same happiness and redemption we associate both with the holidays and in our closest relationships. I love the idea that all of us are mutilated in some way. And while mutilation is a word that has a negative connotation, I would argue that no matter if it's something physical or emotional, it's something that makes you just as strong as it does vulnerable. And that's a really fragile balance."
"Williams' usual obsessions on human appetites and what happens to those who are thwarted from sating those desires gets played for laughs more than sorrow." -Chicago Tribune
"The Mutilated is, surprisingly, a comedy In addition to the grisly title, The Mutilated includes all of Williams usual themesdesire, sexual repression, vice, and violenceonly here they are played for laughs." - HowlRound
