Actor/playwrights Nora Woolley and Kim Katzberg bring their solo shows to IRT Theater.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Darkling is written and performed by Kim Katzberg.
In Darkling, it's 1987, and thirteen-year-old Trinity is obsessed with three things: goth figurines, losing her virginity and being just like her troubled older sister. When her sister commits a daring escape from a boarding school for wayward girls, Trinity must decide whether to follow her into fantasy and madness, or remain in the affluent suburban world that drained her mother's soul. Could there be another choice? A one-girl show about growing up without giving up.
Hip is written and performed by Nora Woolley.
Hip is set in the early aughts, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, ground zero for the modern hipster movement. Wythe, a struggling musician, is convinced his songs have been co-opted by the increasingly popular buzz-band, The Strokes. His single-minded quest for fame is diverted by three women who are also longing for their own brand of recognition. In an increasingly self-aggrandizing community, Wythe must decide what is lasting and what is simply–hip. A story for anyone who has ever wanted it so bad, they could practically fake it.
