"Under the Skin"- Everyman Theatre in Baltimore
« on: January 31, 2016, 05:19:45 PM »
Going to see this in a couple of weeks. Wanted to post in case others are in the area and interested.

Under the Skin

Hot off its sold-out run at the Arden Theatre in Philadelphia, Michael Hollinger's (Opus, Red Herring) funny and moving new play explores the curious nature of family dynamics and the true meaning of giving a part of yourself away. Lou has a complicated relationship with his estranged daughter Raina. But when he needs a kidney transplant in order to survive, their lives are thrust back together and Raina must decide if she can come to terms with her anger and resentment long enough to save her father's life. As Raina struggles with her decision, she meets another potential donor, Jarrell. Surprising revelations from the past are made as her immediate connection with Jarrell sends sparks flying and Raina wrestles with just how much of herself she is willing to give up.

"...a fresh drama about family, parenting, responsibility and need that can draw you in easily. Under the Skin also allows you to laugh. Often."
–The Baltimore Sun

"...this is a family drama that manages to also be really funny. I’ve actually watched things billed as comedies that provided far fewer laughs. I found the levity both welcome and important, as it facilitates the exploration of some serious issues without becoming depressing or preachy."
–DC Metro Theatre Arts

"A story that hits home to just about every living breathing human on earth."
–Philadelphia Weekly
