The University of Minnesota Department of Theatre Arts & Dance presents the following play: 


“The Skriker” blends English and Irish folktales with a non-linear structure to tell the story of an ancient fairy pursuing two young women in 20th century London. Whilst speaking English in her human manifestations, the Skriker forms a language all her own consisting of fragmented wordplay and twisted classic tales. Written in 1994 by the critically-acclaimed playwright Caryl Churchill, this increasingly relevant blend of magical realism and horror speaks to our current climate state. The Skriker is a stunningly imaginative play about the consequences humans must face when we exploit the natural world.
