That's one of the unsettling questions asked by Quiver and Twitch, a new play by Erin Courtney that will get a brief staging July 21-23 at Vasser Collage's Shiva Theatre, as part of the 2006 New York Stage and Film summer season. Sarah Benson will direct a cast that includes Kevin Augustine, Francois Battiste, Gibson Frazier, Peter Maloney and Jennifer R. Morris.
Quiver wants to know, "What if your super had been a prisoner of war? What if you keep dreaming that your apartment has extra rooms? [This] is a play that follows a family through a terrain of dreams, political anxieties, and parenting manuals. Using puppetry, dreamlike imagery and humor, the play smashes the domestic, the fantastic, and the political into one very small apartment in a big city in the U.S."
Courtney's other plays include Demon Baby.
