About this show

Inspired by actual events, Tooth and Claw, by Michael Hollinger, takes a provocative look at political and social evolution in action exploring the culture clash between environmentalists and the native fisherman on the Galapagos Islands. Tooth and Claw is a powerful contemporary drama that questions individual survival, enviornmental responsibilities and plotical ideals. The New York Times observed, "Tooth and Claw sweeps along at a bracing pace bringing the momentum of a thriller to the sometimes dry arena of science plays. The play is rich in issues of evolution and ecological meddling, all the more so because it was inspried by actual events." This New England premiere features an international cast of bilingual actors (Spanish/English) in what called, "One of the most compelling, riveting, and thought-provoking plays to grace the American stage in recent memory. Hollinger has written an important play for our time that is entirely engrossing."
