Feathers and Teeth
March 7 - April 3, 2017
By Charise Castro Smith
Directed by Dámaso Rodríguez
This fairytale concoction of teen angst and devastating loss make for a grisly good time in this crackling new “thrilledy” — a stew of dark comedy, family drama and fantastical carnage.
It’s 1978 and 13-year-old Chris is reeling from her mom’s illness and recent death. Throw in dad’s new girlfriend (mom’s ex-nurse!), a few freaky little creatures and the boy next door, and things really get out of hand.
Part monster tale and part revenge tragedy, the highly theatrical FEATHERS AND TEETH delivers a meaty exploration of grief and obsession.

- 2015 Kilroy List
“…challenging, bloody dramedy…”
“…moral ambiguity to chew over later like so much burnt pot roast.”
“… a full-blown horror story filled with melodrama, frightening creatures, black comedy, and a plethora of blood.”
“Charise Castro Smith’s odd and arresting play…many funny, dark moments that parody the horror genre, with a psychological twist…”
“FEATHERS AND TEETH already is that rare show in our socially earnest collection of nonprofit theaters that will make high school kids and college students feel like they’re on a date rather than still doing their social-studies homework.”
