SKIN TIGHT by Gary Henderson

“Skin Tight” gets under the skin with the poetic universality of love and life.  We can’t ask much more of theater.   Damien Jaques Journal Sentinel 10/30/04

"Sally and I saw Skin Tight in 2004 when RTW first presented it. No work of theater art has ever affected me more, emotionally, than that play.  It is for lovers. I recommend it. If you go take plenty of Kleenex." - Robb Marks

Skin Tight

By Gary Henderson

April 4-27, 2014

Directed by Laura Gordon

Featuring Leah Dutchin and Braden Moran

Tom’s hand was strong to the plough and Elizabeth’s lips were red.

                                                -Denis Glover "The Magpies"

Renaissance Theaterworks' searing 2004 hit has returned by popular demand, featuring the original cast and director.  A story inspired by Glover’s poem, SKIN TIGHT captures the passion, struggle and undying devotion of a life-long love affair.  Choreographed with electric sensuality on an almost bare stage, Tom and Elizabeth wrestle, play and love with erotic abandon. Come fall in love with SKIN TIGHT all over again.

“Skin Tight creates its own theatrical genre: stage poetry”

“Skin Tight” is a moving, achingly beautiful story…building to a quietly explosive emotional climax [with] an ending that is as heartrending as it is elegantly perfect.  Jason Powell Shepherd-Express 11/4/04
