<GADFLYTHEATRE [at] GMAIL.COM> Gadfly Theatre Productions Presents The
Children’s PlayBy Sami PfefferJanuary 30th, 2018 (Minneapolis/St. Paul) --
The Children's Play follows the Prince of the Oceans, a mercurial
melancholy being, and their interactions with Girl, the Fool, and the
Hideous Monster, each of whom embody additional symptoms of mental health.
These four main characters explore a strange, bleak world on a confusing
and ultimately irrelevant quest.  This play is intended for an adult
audience, and is inspired by eclectic art forms like mime, commedia
dell’arte, dance, and puppetry. The Children’s Play blends those styles
together into a visually striking moving painting that explores gender,
trauma, mental illness, and identity around a loose and whimsical
narrative.The Children’s Play is art created for, by, and with queer,
trans, and non-binary people. Immanuel Elliott directs a cast that includes
Khadija Siddiqui, Addison Sharpe, Ming Hsu, Ally Van Siclen, Ari Shapiro,
and Riley Jay Davis. Dustin Bailey serves as stage manager. That means this
important work features an transgender or otherwise non-binary cast of
brilliant actors and movement artists ready to take you on an unexpected
journey. Please note this show is not explicitly an actual children’s
show.​The play will be at the Phoenix Theater on March 2-4th and 9-11th.
All shows at 7:30 PM except Sunday matinees, which are at 3:00 PM. Tickets
to The Children’s Play are $15 in advance and $20 at the door for a regular
show, and features two Pay-What-You-Can performances on Sunday matinees.
