The US Premiere of 'Skin Tight'
by Gary Henderson
directed by Pamela Butler
Winner of all awards at the 1998 Edinburg Fringe Festival, Skin Tight premiered in 1994 at the Bats Theatre, where it played to packed houses. This work from New Zea- land, inspired by Denis Glover’s poem “ The Magpies,” tells the intimate story of a rural marriage, where Tom and Elizabeth engage in a violent and erotic dance of the union through an exhilarating feast of fights, lovemaking and tenderness. The characters strip themselves, literally, to explore the heart of an en- during love. Skin Tight captures all the ecstasy and pain of a passionate love affair.
