The Skriker, a dark, shape-shifting fairy, is drawn to desperation. After attaching herself to two teenage girls, the Skriker wreaks havoc with their lives, haphazardly granting minor wishes, using dark magic to make flowers rain from the sky and turn words into frogs, and ultimately dragging both girls into a rotting underworld filled with a macabre ensemble of broken fairies. Helpless against her power, the girls become increasingly desperate to save themselves and each other. In one of her most astonishing works, Caryl Churchill seamlessly weaves themes of environmentalism and feminism into a world bursting with creatures from British folklore that are known for drowning and eating children.
THE SKRIKER features the work of: Dayo Anderson, Kasey Brockwell, Valerie Brunetto, Rosie Currier, Jen Dotsey, Linnea Emigh, Danny Fisher-Bruns, Brenan Grant, Eric Grenfell-Phillips, Chelsie Hanner, Zack Hewell, Bethany Hightower, Molly Mahar Lyman, Courtney Meaker, Daniela Melgar, Wilder Nutting-Heath, Beth Raas-Bergquist, Rob Raas-Bergquist, Phoebe Richards, Travis Roderick, Jen Ross, Patrick Savedra, Jessica Stepka, Julia Welch.
