Mildred’s Umbrella Theater Company to Present LARGE ANIMAL GAMES Through 7/14

Mildred's Umbrella Theater Company will present Large Animal Games, by Steve Yockey and directed by Matt Huff (A Picasso at Stages; The Flu Season for Mildred's Umbrella). The performances will run June 28 through July 14, 2012 at Studio 101 at Spring Street Studios.

Synopsis: This incisive, unexpected, and larger than life tale of sex, love, and self delusion tracks the overlapping escapades of a group of friends old enough to know better in love but still naive enough to mess things up anyway, and the man who supplies them with equal parts tough love, lingerie and self awareness. In a series of fluid scenes, Large Animal Games takes a comically skewed and razor-sharp look at modern relationships through a mix of bullfights, big game hunting and intimate apparel.

STEVE YOCKEY's full-length plays include Bellwether, Cartoon, Disassembly, Heavier than…, Large animal games, Octopus, Skin, Sleepy, Wonder. His short plays include Bright. Apple.
