Mildred's Umbrella Theater Company presents Tooth and Tail: A Staged Reading
Mildred’s Umbrella will share a new fantasy from local playwright and University of Houston student Elizabeth A.M. Keel. Keel is an emerging female playwright whose work has been performed at METDance, Bootown, The Landing Theatre, Nova Arts, and Cone Man Running in addition to MU in Houston, as well as Squeaky Bicycle, and Fresh Produce’d in New York.
Tooth & Tail follows in the footsteps of Keel’s previous works with a keen eye to embracing the slightly impossible. Jam-packed with princesses, dragons, pirates and more, Tooth & Tail is part fairy-tale, part rescue mission, part love story, and all adventure.
Tooth & Tail was developed and workshopped through the support of Mildred's Umbrella Theatre Company, and their ongoing commitment to the empowerment of female theatre artists and their stories. The audience is encouraged to stay after the performance for a discussion with the playwright, director, and cast.
