Theater Schmeater is pleased to present Hiedi Schrek’s enigmatic play Creature, opening on Friday May 27th, and running on Thursday Fridays and Saturdays until June 25th
Its 1402 and Margery Kemp is a successful and independent woman, an amorous wife, young mother, daughter to the mayor, and successful business woman. Life is going swimmingly, until she is visited by Jesus, and things get a little less clear. Some think she is delusional, some that she is possessed, others find her heretical. In fact, she’s not all that sure herself. Ms Schrek’s compelling play based on the historical Margery Kemp offers an imaginative glimpse into the personal life of a woman suddenly aware of the immensity of existence.
“An absorbing new play about character and faith.. At once lighthearted and serious. ” Rachel Saltz NY TIMES
“Schreck’s script has narrative simplicity, contemporary zing and lyrical flights of startling loveliness.” Helen Shaw, Time Out New York
