Storming the Castle with...Christina Fox
Hometown: Colorado Springs, CO
Who do you play in The Castle?: Cant
Tell us about The Castle: The Castle is a romping examination of the effects of the most extreme suffering on human nature, an examination of gender roles, tables turned, and, perhaps most poignantly, a love story.
Describe The Castle in 3 words: Gripping, Unrelenting, Philosophical
Which company member is most likely to end up carrying a corpse for life?: Stephen Mrowiec. He seeks cruel and unusual punishment.
Most likely to have no opinion?: Aubrey Dube. He'll be smiling no matter what happens.
Most likely to draw pornographic pictures?: No opinion.
End up a prisoner?: Brent
Be an actual witch?: Rob Zuckerman
To get pregnant after 40?: Missa. Those child-bearing hips don't lie.
Who’s the best builder?: None of them. Nothing is actually built!
Why should we come see The Castle: The play is so full of conflicting and provocative thoughts, and the poetry of the language is so potent that these thoughts will become embedded in your brain and they will plague you for weeks--in the best way. There's nothing quite like going to a thought-provoking piece of theatre, and Barker is one of the most thought-provoking playwrights out there. In my opinion.
