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.
