Keen Teens 2017!

10 May

My short play Tilda Swinton Betrayed Us is part of Keen Company’s 2017 Keen Teens Festival of New Works this weekend, May 12 – 14! You’ll also have a chance to catch two other new short pieces by Boo Killebrew and Eleanor Burgess on this triple bill.

Zi Alikhan is directing brilliantly and with the fullest heart. I’m very excited to have these young thespians tackle such an emotional play. Many of you know what a huge fan I am of Tilda Swinton, others might also know how deeply saddened I am by her recent myopia. It’s enough to make you want to throw a chair… or ten… or to have teenage actors throw them for you…

Tilda Swinton Betrayed Us

by A. Rey Pamatmat
directed by Zi Alikhan

An actress’s fan club finds its survival threatened when the actions of their beloved icon leave the group sharply divided on how to respond. Discovering that they can’t address this incident without acknowledging broader cultural truths, they realize the only way forward is to discuss the difficult and complicated things we don’t like talking about.
