The Skriker by Caryl Churchill

The Skriker by Caryl Churchill

Manchester International Festival
United Kingdom

The cast includes Sarah Amankwah, Harry Attwell, Alex Austin, Hannah Hutch, Martins Imhangbe, Kate Jackson, Stuart Overington, Beatrice Scirocchi, Andrew Sheridan, Jessica Walker, Leah Walker and Owen Whitelaw.

In a broken world two sisters meet an extraordinary creature. The Skriker is a shapeshifter. She can be an old woman, a child, a death portent. She is a faerie come from the Underworld to pursue and entrap them, through time and space, through this world and her own.

One of MIF13's most electrifying moments was Maxine Peake and Sarah Frankcom’s presentation of Shelley’s Peterloo memorial, The Masque of Anarchy performed just yards from the site of the massacre. Fresh from her leading role in Hamlet (2014), Royal Exchange Associate Artist Maxine Peake renews her partnership with Royal Exchange Artistic Director Sarah Frankcom, to play the title role in this landmark revival of Caryl Churchill’s extraordinary collision of ancient fairy story and portrait of a fractured England. This new version will feature specially commissioned music by Nico Muhly and Antony (Antony and the Johnsons).
