Produced by

Groundwater Productions

Playwright: Erin Shields
Director: Andrea Donaldson

Inspired by the stories of Angela Carter


Bob Nasmith Innovation Backspace


November 21st, 2007 – December 2nd, 2007


Lost to The Beast in a wager by her father, caught in the Erl-King’s cage, shaken into a lycanthropic fit, and swung from the strings of a Gypsy puppeteer, Masha’s bad luck never seems to run out. Equally acrobatic and poetic, comedic and erotic, violent and hysterical, Erin Shields’ performance brings this feminist Gothic work to life.  (Show Facebook Event)
