Taffety Punk Presents CHARM, Now thru 5/31
Taffety Punk presents Charm now through May 31. Charm was written by Kathleen Cahill and directed by Kelsey Mesa.
The plays of Taffety Punk's Rulebreaker Rep focus on literary giants confronting their own dangerous delusions while wrestling with questions of innocence, liberty, and self-possession. Bloody Poetry follows writers Percy and Mary Shelley, her half-sister Claire Clairmont and Lord Byron through six years of the quartet's entangled existence, and the radical views on love, life, and writing that set them at odds with conventional society and eventually, with each other. Charm presents the fascinating presence of Margaret Fuller, who upends the male-dominated literary world of Hawthorne, Emerson, and Thoreau, threatening their notions of womanhood in 1840's America.
