The Skriker


Erickson Theatre Off Broadway (map) Capitol Hill
Mondays-Sundays. Continues through Nov. 11 2012


"Though it has goblins and curses, The Skriker isn't just spooky in a superficial, cheap-Halloween-decorations sense. Between Churchill's anxious text about teenage mothers in a gritty English city, Janice Findley's moody direction, and Pat Graney's unnerving choreography, this production echoes the darker telltale heart beating inside the play. In English mythology, a skriker haunts travelers and is tough to shake. In some accounts, to ignore it will bring bad luck, but to attack it brings disaster. In short, you're stuck with the fucker. Churchill's Skriker, played by Mary Ewald, is a pitiful and malevolent old woman—in the stage directions, a "death portent, ancient and damaged"—who follows Josie (a haunted Mariel Neto) and Lily (a more sincere and innocent Jessica Martin)." (Brendan Kiley)
