IRON CROW THEATRE debuts Edith can shoot things and hit them.
HISTORIC AND AWARD-WINNING 16/17 SEASON OF DARK PLAY CONTINUES
BALTIMORE, Maryland - March 28, 2017: Iron Crow Theatre continues it’s historic, and now award-winning, 16/17 season of Dark Play with A. Rey Pamatmat’s, deeply meaningful and resonant queer coming of age story, Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them. Three kids - Kenny, his sister Edith, and their friend Benji - are all but abandoned on a farm in remotest Middle America. With little adult supervision, they feed and care for each other, making up the rules as they go. But when Kenny's and Benji's relationship becomes more than friendship, and Edith shoots something she really shouldn't shoot, the formerly indifferent outside world comes crashing in whether they want it to or not. Tender, charming and full of heart, this coming of age story explores the gap between childhood and whatever comes next; forcing us to engage with what it means to remain young when exposed to the adult world far too quickly.
“Our most heartwarming story of the season, this piece explores the very serious game play that children must engage in for survival when left to create their own rules, without guidance, support, love and belonging,” said Sean Elias, Artistic Director and CEO. “Edith...is one of the first pieces of dramatic literature that explores sexual and gender identity through the experiences of children. This is an exploration that must take place as all too often our adult discomfort forces us to ignore these experiences in children, or even worse, to silence them.”
Directed by Sean Elias and Assistant Directed by Robert Corona. Set Design by Joe Martin, Lighting Design by Janine Vreat*, Costume Design by Ben Kress and Sound Design by Sara Bahermez.
