The Body which is the Town

by Casey Llewellyn

Industry has abandoned the small New England town of Underhill, and The Cave, a private men’s prison with a women’s prison ajoining has moved into the empty space. Angie, nine, moved to the town with her mom while her dad was incarcerated and has lived there ever since. It’s her summer with him, and the fissures are opening in an already broken world when a movie crew shows up to shoot a “reality-inspired” movie in the women’s prison with two queer actors from the city. As Angie shows us around her town with the help of local animals, we learn that she is writing changes into world history, and we are asked to be involved. 

This play with music will ask you who you are in relation to acting, seeing, prisons, and our future together. You might be an animal.
