The Bushwick Starr has announced an extension of its current production, the world premiere of Erin Markey's Singlet. It will now run through June 12.

In Singlet, according to a press release, Markey "draws on their longstanding friendship and working relationship with actor Emily Davis to create a performance that maps the bonds and hysteria of earned intimacy. Combining Markey's singular style with a host of influences, this kaleidoscopic world premiere production grapples with the desire, rivalry, vulnerability, and subterfuge that bind two people together. By turns tenacious and tender, Singlet reimagines the economies of power between friends, families, and wrestlers."

Starring Markey and Davis, and directed by Jordan Fein, Singlet features scenic design by Carolyn Mraz, costume design by Enver Chakartash with Carter Kidd, lighting design by Barbara Samuels, and sound design by Jeff Aaron Bryant with Sadah Espii Proctor.
