Drama Experimental Minnesota premiere

Fortune's Fool presents the regional premiere of a seldom-seen masterpiece by Caryl Churchill (Cloud 9, Top Girls). 

"Whatever you do, don't open the do don't open the door." Mankind is destroying the Earth. The Skriker, a malevolent shape-shifting fairy and death portent, leaves her underworld realm in search of revenge. In London, she finds two teenaged girls: Josie, who has murdered her young child, and Lily, who is pregnant. Speaking in riddles, changing her shape at every encounter, alternately promising glorious wishes and threatening physical harm, she seeks ownership of their souls by any means necessary. A wild chorus of dancing, pounding, singing spirits serves the Skriker in her pursuit.

Directed by Ben Layne, choreographed by Josiah Thompson, original music by Keith Hovis.
