A Small Pair of Feet in the Middle of the Sea

A Small Pair of Feet in the Middle of the Sea

Wednesday, September 29, 2021 - 7:00 pm to Sunday, October 3, 2021 - 2:00 pm

TheatreUNI’s first production for the 2021-2022 season is A Small Pair of Feet in the Middle of the Sea by Kit Steinkeller. This “whimsical drama” is a radical retelling of the Greek myth of Icarus, the boy who flew too close to the sun. At times silly and at times somber, A Small Pair of Feet... is a lyrical look at what it means to find love in remarkable circumstances and an examination of who deserves second chances. Outdoor performances only for the safety of our audiences!  

Outdoor seating options: Chairs on risers: $15; Seated on steps (cushions available) $10; Be a groundling - bring a blanket! $6

Directed by:  Matt Weedman

"A Small Pair of Feet in the Middle of the Sea”

"A Small Pair of Feet in the Middle of the Sea”

Saturday, October 2, 2021 - 7:00 pm

TheatreUNI will present “A Small Pair of Feet in the Middle of the Sea” by Kit Steinkeller at 7 p.m., Sept. 29 - Oct. 2 and on Oct. 3  at 2 p.m. in the Arts Triangle Courtyard on the University of Northern Iowa campus.

“A Small Pair of Feet in the Middle of the Sea” is a “deconstruction” of the Greek myth of Icarus, the boy who flew too close to the sun, written by Kit Steinkeller (the creator of the television series “Sorry for Your Loss”).  Described by the author as a “whimsical drama,” the play, at times deeply silly and at times very sad, asks questions about the essential nature of truth, the lies we tell ourselves and the enduring power of story and myth. 

“A Small Pair of Feet”  is the first offering of TheatreUNI’s 2021-2022  season and the first live theatre production since the start of the pandemic.  The production is directed by Matthew James Weedman, associate professor of performance. Scenic design is by Mark Parrott, associate professor of design, and costume design is by Megan Gilchrist, a senior design and production student.  Lighting design is by Ron Koinzen  and the production stage manager is Olivia McQuerry. This play will be produced outdoors. 

Tickets are $15 for chairs, $10 for stair seats (cushions available), $6 for ground seats (bring your own blanket) and free for UNI students with their student ID. Tickets can be purchased from the UNITix website and at the UNItix counter in the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center.

The bombs have been dropped, and now you are stuck with the last person you would want to be trapped with waiting for help. It was a lovely day in the park. Now you have to talk. Remember those conversations you should have had? Now's your chance. Whether you like it or not, for better or for worse. Awkward silences and cold shoulders abound. It's going to get weird. A play in One Act.
