Maureen Huskey directs "The Exile of Petie Delarge" in RedCat's NOW Festival, Los Angeles



Jul 22 2010 - Jul 31 2010


LOCATION

Los Angeles, CA

Maureen Huskey will be directing The Exile of Petie Delarge by Jennifer Barclay as part of RedCat’s NOW festival this July in Los Angeles. Inspired by the youthful rebellion and moral questions posed in three iconic novels, A Clockwork Orange, The Lord of the Flies and Peter Pan, Exile uses invented slang, sudden reality shifts and a sudden death to evoke a landscape of power struggles, wounded intimacy and lost innocence. Huskey will animate a claustrophobic world on a college campus in the middle of nowhere, where carnal impulses butt up against physical and psychological restraint. Exile’s audience will serve as the private jury for an anarchic gang of students as they defend their avenging motives, divulge their buried desires and re-enact primal revolts such as an all-out orgy in the student center. Inspired by Andy Warhol’s 1965 VINYL, Exile‘s audience will confront a highly presentational and caricatured view of human nature and its dysfunctions, then without preamble, experience the actors’ submission to a raw vulnerability and fragility that marks the transition into adulthood.
