January 13th-February 10th, 2018
TBG Main Stage Theatre, 312 West 36 St
A world premiere, with a cast of four, The Thing With Feathers feels almost like a thriller as Scott Organ masterfully spins the tale of a teenage girl who strikes up a relationship with an older man on the internet. Things are not as they seem, however. What appears to be a classic predator tale unravels into a maze of secrets, lies & unexpected truths. As a culture, we are being asked to examine our actions, specifically where power is involved. This play brings that conversation home.
Seth Barrish (“Sleepwalk With Me,” The Tricky Part, Expecting Isabel) directs another wonderful cast featuring Zachary Booth (The Winslow Boy, “Damages”), DeAnna Lenhart (Point Last Seen, Phoenix), Robert Manning, Jr. (Magic/Bird, “Blue Bloods”), and Alexa Shae Niziak (Matilda the Musical, A Christmas Story the Musical). The Barrow Group Theatre Company has produced a number of Mr. Organ’s plays (Phoenix; Afraid. Yes. Of.; The Mulligan, The Faithful).
