The Skriker ()

Presented by

Theatre Brouhaha

Playwright: Caryl Churchill
Director: Daniel Pagett


The Storefront Theatre


October 23rd, 2014 – November 9th, 2014


Caryl Churchill’s The Skriker is often described as her ‘impossible play’, due to the magical nature of the show, the shattered language with which the narrator speaks, and the sheer scope of the faerie underworld that it weaves in and out of.  Incorporating physical theatre, mask, dance and a world premiere score, The Skriker provides a completely immersive experience in this dark and twisted world.
