Professional Theatre For Maine

Under the Skin

Feb 1, 2017

by Michael Hollinger

This deeply funny, powerful and moving new play about parents and children explores the truth about this most complicated connection. Raina’s ailing father needs her kidney. But he’s been a lousy dad, so she’s not too convinced he’s “kidney worthy”. How do we get to a place of forgiveness and generosity with the people who have let us down? What IS our responsibility to our parents and theirs to us? Why is it so hard to feel like an adult when our parents are in the room? Time jumps backwards and sideways and game changing secrets are revealed as this exciting new play asks, “What does it mean to give a part of yourself to someone else”?

Recommended for Grades 10 and up.
