It’s a play-within-a-play about a woman’s quest to find her voice–and finish her script.
“I first read the play last year when it was just a first draft, but even then I knew it was something I wanted to produce,” says Laura Youngkin (Theater MFA 10), who is also performing in the play. “When I heard about the Hollywood Fringe, I knew we’d be a perfect fit.” The show marks Youngkin’s first foray in producing and acting in Los Angeles.
It all started on the Subway… a feverish one-act written after a messy breakup. Then the playwright heard an urban legend about a snake and its owner, and everything came together. Somehow, these stories seem congruent. The snake begins to stretch, and so do the limits of this relationship. A story about the devourer and the devouree’. Who will eat whom first?
