Celebrating ten years of bringing horror to the Chicago stage, WildClaw Theatre Company presents the world premiere of Second Skin, a new production by Kristin Idaszak and directed by Jess Hutchinson.
Second Skin is told in three interconnected monologues starring Paula Ramirez, Stephanie Shum, and Hilary Williams. It is a haunting study of the delicate relationship between mothers and daughters, where just one mistake can affect future generations.
When Quinn discovers her estranged mother is dying, she returns to a home she fled long ago. As she cares for her mother, Quinn wrestles with disturbing childhood memories. What is her mother's secret? What do the bedtime stories of Selkies her mother once told her really mean... This is a World Premiere from an all-women-led design team and the 14th production from WildClaw Theatre.
Performances run September 14th through October 13th (Thurs.-Sat. 7:30pm; Sundays 3pm) at the Den Theatre (1333 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago, IL). Tickets $15-$30. Discounts are available.
