Intimacy in Cincinnati

Geraldine-born playwright Gary Henderson’s Skin Tight opens Cincinnati’s Know Theatre’s season. An hour-long memory play, Skin Tight is part theatrical and melancholy tone poem and part showcase of stage combat. Skin Tight, an intimate look at the marriage of Tom and Elizabeth, is all about the lovin’ and the fightin’. It’s easy to see why director and fight choreographer Drew Fracher has had Henderson’s Skin Tight on his wish list for a few years. Skin Tight won a Fringe First Award at the Edinburgh Fringe in 1998 during a sell-out season at the Traverse Theatre. It was also produced in New York in 26, UK in 27 and Canada in 28. Henderson currently teaches playwriting at Unitec’s School of Performing and Screen Arts in Auckland.
