Riley Elton McCarthy‘s IVORIES returns to New York City after a smash-hit production at The Tank for PrideFest 2021. IVORIES will then transfer overseas in a coveted spot at Edinburgh Fringe’s opening week.
SYNOPSIS: Brought back to their childhood home to care for grandmother who is riddled with severe dementia, young prodigal playwright Sloane and their botanist husband Gwyn are struggling to settle in to a new routine after having their lives uprooted by tragedy. The longer Sloane stays in their grandmother’s home, the more secrets and childhood trauma begins to resurface, and the couple soon suspects something deeply sinister is afoot in this small, suburban New England estate. Good thing their best friend Beckham’s there to help sort out the estate… right?
IVORIES is written and directed by Riley Elton McCarthy, produced and sound designed by Gustavo Blaauw, and assistant directed by Chloe Kramer. IVORIES is lighting designed by Nick Godfrey, and stage managed by Elena Jenson. IVORIES is a Basement Light Productions flagship production.
IVORIES runs exactly 100 minutes and is performed in the round.
