About the Performance


“The Skriker” blends English and Irish folktales to tell the story of an ancient fairy pursuing two young women in 20th century London. Whilst speaking English in her human manifestations, the Skriker forms a language all her own consisting of fragmented wordplay and twisted classic tales. Written in 1994 by the critically-acclaimed playwright Caryl Churchill, this increasingly relevant blend of magical realism and horror speaks to our current climate state. The Skriker is a stunningly imaginative play about the consequences humans must face when we exploit the natural world.
