FROM THE MOUTHS OF MONSTERS

A world premiere Kennedy Center commission
By Idris Goodwin
Directed by Douglas Irvine

Teenager Michelle struggles to find the confidence to speak. A mysterious doctor gives her a mask to help, but the gift possesses supernatural abilities that cause her to give words amazing power--and also the potential to cause terrible harm. After finding no trace of the doctor, and as others surprisingly start mimicking her newfound abilities, will Michelle be able to master the monster within?

This highly theatrical work is inspired by Mary Shelley's enduring classic Frankenstein, which celebrates 200 years in 2018. For the book's upcoming special anniversary, award-winning playwright and BreakBeat poet Idris Goodwin along with acclaimed director Douglas Irvine (the Kennedy Center's presentations of Jason and the Argonauts and The Adventures of Robin Hood) have created a fiercely relevant two-actor play that examines the monstrous power of words… and those who wield them. Most enjoyed by age 12 and up. All patrons, regardless of age must have a ticket.

Performance Timing: 65 minutes, with no intermission.
