stands out, not only for its humor and intelligence, but for its defiant theatricality. Artforum
Elevator Repair Service, creators of the six-hour Gatz sensation, return to the Walker with a preview performance of their latest play, an exciting large-scale production written by a rising star in the New York experimental theater scene, playwright Sibyl Kempson. As a serene domestic scene gradually unravels, mysterious offstage forces and an unexpected guest become entwined in a surreal homage to Jane Bowles, Mary Shelley, and a cadre of other influences.
