“I’m like a chimpanzee because I’m mischievous and I’m stronger than a man.”

Kimberly is a character like no other. She’s powerful, wicked, in control—but she has no voice. So she sets out to find it, leaving a trail of car crashes and crying people in her wake. Then she meets Miles. And she’ll do anything he says.

From engagement parties to team-building weekends to improv comedy, The Feather in the Web is an unpredictable take on infatuation and self-discovery. Skewering our obsession with couples and careers, it asks just how much we’re willing to give (and lose) for love.

Nick Coyle (Hammerhead (Is Dead)) has written a playful, disturbing and yet surprisingly hopeful coming-of-age story. It’s part picaresque, part fable—a journey from silence to a full-throated ROAR. Featuring Nikki Shiels (The Unspoken Word Is ‘Joe’) as the enigmatic Kimberly and directed by Ben Winspear, this Lysicrates Prize finalist without a doubt the most inventive play you’ll see all year.
