SKIN TIGHT Synopsis: "Tom's hand was strong to the plough and Elizabeth's lips were red." Dennis 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. Note: Brief nudity and mature language.
