Inspired by a photograph of a partially illuminated door and Seneca’s famous essay On the Shortness of Life (49 AD), the play explores the theme of the satisfaction of living, through formally distinct segments, each one proposing a singular scenographic universe. Conceived and directed by Leslie Baker, co-created with Emma Tibaldo and Joseph Shragge, initially developed through PWM’s Interdisciplinary Writers Lab (2015), SKIN continues to be developed with the support of Playwrights’ Workshop Montreal, with development support from Aluna Theatre’s CAMINOS Festival (Toronto, 2017), and digital creation residencies at both Maison de la Culture Notre Dame de Grace and Centaur Theatre (2020).
