ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

CrowPlay is an original devised work created collectively by Invulnerable Nothings, a pleasant nightmare at the intersection of theater and poetry. The Morrigna in Irish folklore, 2013 intelligence studies around corvidae neurobiology from University Tubingen, marginalia from Edgar Allan Poe, and American Murder Ballads all collide as a conspiracy of raven-women leads the audience—participatory witnesses— through an expanding series of rituals. This shared ceremony is complicated by the arrival of the mysterious Jane, who is not everything she appears to be. A blood rite gone wrong…

CrowPlay owes its shape to a generous research and development processes over October/November 2017 at both Theatre Deli London and Centrespace Bristol. It received its world premier in October 2018 as part of the New York International Fringe Festival and features the work of performer-devisers Lauren Guglielmello, C.C. Kellogg, Sarah Quigley*, and Hannah Wolfe* as well as stage manager/ facilitator Allie Moratta (*appearing courtesy of AEA) .
