*FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: GADFLYTHEATRE [at] GMAIL.COM <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.
