on tour: Darlings
"Physical devised theater at its best ... thoughtfully created and brilliantly executed." -Watermark Orlando
"Audience members will never again look at the Peter Pan story in quite the same way." -Cincinnati CityBeat (CRITIC'S PICK!)
"Brown and Muasher are fabulously disciplined performers. Every move, every twist, every phrase is meticulously presented. The impact is surprisingly profound." -Cincinnati Enquirer
A re-imagining of “Peter Pan” told from the perspective of the Darlings, two parents struggling with the loss of their children. They search for them by day and tell stories about a place called Neverland by night ... where the mermaids will drown you, the pirates might kill you, and you can’t trust the charming little boy with the impish smile. A dark and dangerous fairy tale for adults.
Darlings is created and performed by Animal Engine Co-Artistic Directors Carrie Brown and Karim Muasher in collaboration with Katie Hartman and Nick Ryan of the Coldharts, with direction from Melinda Jean Ferraraccio.
