Don't Kill the Angels by Claudia Barnett

  • The Barbershop Theatre 4003 Indiana Avenue Nashville United States (map)


At the intersection between two worlds—a coastal home at once sheltered and safe and also broken, slipping into the sea—an enchanted couple, artist and scientist, evolve into prophet and monster, seer and dream. As the drama drifts between times, a feckless fairy godmother hovers, her spells abortive; buzzards shadow windows with angel wings; and a nine-lived sloth plays housecat. Inspired by the poetry of John Keats, the paintings of Henry Fuseli, mythology, and neuroscience, Don’t Kill the Angels leads its audience on a journey through the haunted mind.
