Join us for the final show of the season! The regional premiere of MEDICINE by ENDA WALSH, April 20–30 @ The Spot.
The blackbox theater located at 220 Lewis Street #2, Ketchum, ID 83340.
John Kane is sitting on a hospital gurney, and very shortly a jazz percussionist, two women called Mary, a very old man and a giant lobster will arrive.
Then everything will start.
Medicine is a dark and frequently absurdist work that shatters the boundary between cast and audience. It is a devastatingly funny and moving meditation on how, for decades, we have treated those we have called ‘mentally ill’.
Medicine, a Landmark Productions and Galway International Arts Festival production, received its world premiere at the Edinburgh International Festival in August 2021 prior to its opening at GIAF 2021 in September and New York transfer to St. Ann’s Warehouse in November.
The Spot’s production will be the show’s regional premiere in the U.S. and the first performance by a new company of actors. (The world premiere was written for and created with the original cast.) In keeping with Enda Walsh’s vision to devise the piece with a deeply connected ensemble our production is helmed by/features The Spot Cr3w and close collaborators.
Recommended for audiences 16+ due to language, violence and mature themes.
