Andrew Lippa's The Wild Party was an off-broadway gem that garnered an array of industry accolades, including Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, & Obie awards. Adapted from Joseph Moncure March's 1928 narrative poem of the same name, The Wild Party tells the story of Queenie and Burrs. In a relationship marked by vicious behavior and recklessness, they decide to throw a party to end all parties. In Iron Crow Theatre's queering of the piece, The Wild Party exists in a dreamlike state, somewhere between sexual fantasy and nightmare. As guests arrive, we meet an assortment of characters who exemplify what it means to live beyond the binary and on the edge while Queenie 'sets the stage' for a brutal game of lust, jealousy and deception. One wild evening gives us a stark insight into the danger and risk inherent within the game some call love.
Please note that The Wild Party explores mature themes, contains adult language, sexual content and violence.
