MN Fringe 2017: "Serpentine" - phillip low

  • Strike Theater 824 18th Avenue Northeast Minneapolis, MN, 55418 United States (map)

"Copulation of serpents determined my destiny. Boyish, unmanly, I ventured, adventured my way into forests primeval; glanced down in the dirt, in the dirt-trodden path, where I witnessed the scaly sinews of snakes intertwining in love..."

A new expressionistic verse tragedy, in which a young boy slaughters a pair of copulating snakes, and is cursed to spend his life as a double-gendered voyeur -- a prophet, both male and female, whose visions of the future are ridiculed by their subjects.

WARNING: may contain graphic descriptions of violent and sexual acts.

Also featuring storytelling by Christy Marie Kent and Jena Young!

Day passes start at just $16! Advance tickets can be purchased through the Minnesota Fringe website:

"...low has a hell of an ear for language. Those are some downright beautiful sentences...the guy gives good aural."
- Glen Weldon, Washington City Paper (Washington, DC)

"...dark and passionate...thought-provoking theater..."
- Daniel Gerzina, Time Out Chicago (Chicago, IL)

"...a healthy blend of outrage and amusement..."
