"Where there was id, there shall be ego." - Freud
Fort Point Theatre Channel's playwright and co-artistic director Silvia Graziano's new play takes a deep, dark look at the battle between our human and animal impulses. This premiere production is a chilling story of a trio of characters whose paths cross with surreal results. A big city writer is holed up with his lover in the country and as they discuss his upcoming murder story, a stranger comes upon their house, seemingly the victim of some kind of accident. The three people share secrets, but the inevitable battle for control leads to the question of where their stories of sex and violence will end. The actors will be joined on stage by a pair of dancers from the Contrapose Dance and musician Brendan Burns, who composed the score for play.
Since its founding in 2007, FPTC has earned a reputation for unique productions that bridge the diverse genres of its 13 artist members and their guests. With Indiscreet Discretion, FPTC takes this further, combining traditional theatre with original dance by Contrapose Dance, and featuring live music composed and performed by Brendan Burns. The script has a touch of Edgar Allen Poe and Harold Pinter-mixing reality with surrealism-while blending the dark and the delicious.
