SINGLET by Erin Markey, directed by Jordan Fein at The Bushwick Starr
May 16-June 3
In Singlet, Erin Markey draws on their longstanding friendship and working relationship with actor Emily Davis to create a performance that maps the bonds and hysteria of earned intimacy. This world premiere production combines Erin’s singular style with a host of influences—spanning Jean Genet’s The Maids, celebrity psychotherapist Esther Perel’s couples counseling sessions, Notes on a Scandal, John Waters’ Female Trouble, Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan Quartet, and Precious Moments® Collectible Dolls. By turns tenacious and tender, Singlet reimagines the economies of power between friends, families, and wrestlers.
