A MODEL. A MURDER. A VELVET SWING.
Inspired by the notorious tale of Evelyn Nesbit, the original 19th Century supermodel and leading lady of the “Trial of The Century,” VELVET SWING focuses on truth and testimony, choice and circumstance, and the origin of the American Woman. Savage Umbrella breaks open this fascinating woman's biography through vaudeville performance, movement exploration, and witty banter between the many versions of the Gibson Girl herself. (To fall down an intriguing Wikipedia spiral, go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evelyn_Nesbit)
WHAT IS A WORKSHOP PRESENTATION?
Savage Umbrella believes the audience (that’s you!) is a vital part of the creation process. That’s why we invite you into the messy parts, the unfinished work. Together, we are so much more, and we can create art that reflects pieces of ourselves: our joys, our fears, our stories. After the work-in-progress showing, we invite you to lend your voice to the new play making process through our signature audience conversations.
All audience members are invited to participate in the conversation, or just listen and write down thoughts on the surveys we provide! If post-show conversations aren't your thing... that's okay, too! We welcome feedback in whatever way is most comfortable to you.
Conceived by Alana Horton

The late Sam Shepard's seminal thrilling drama about toxic, passionate, star-crossed lovers Eddie and May, a ghostly old man in a rocking chair, and a young gentleman caller. Winner of the Obie Award. "...Sam Shepard's purest and most beautiful play." -- NY Daily News
"It as mysterious and unsettling -- now you see it, now you don't -- as spare and, incidentally, as funny as anything [Shepard] has ever done." -- The New Yorker
