The Sporting Life AND The Drowning Girls|
of Icarus Jones By Beth Graham, Charlie Tomlinson, and
By Marcus Gardley Daniela Vlaskalic
Directed by Chika Ike Directed by Rebecca Marzalak-Kelly
This evening of short plays probing the complexity of relationships begin with director Chika Ike's staging of "The Sporting Life of Icarus Jones" by Marcus Gardley, whose work -- including "The House That Will Not Stand" (NYTW) and "On The Levee" (LCT) has made him the heir to Garcia Lorca, Pirandello, and Tennessee Williams (New Yorker). "The Drowning Girls," directed by Rebecca Marzalek-Kelly, weaves fact and fantasy through London's infamous Brides in the Bath murder case, where the killers victims -- his three newlywed wives -- get a chance to tell their side of the story.
Following the Saturday, January 25th performance at 2pm:
