Written by Erin Austin and Directed by Ross Evans, Plastic Flamingo Theatre Company will be premiering Fit at The New York International Fringe Festival in August. Check out OUR LISTING on the FringeNYC website, and an INTERVIEW WITH THE PLAYWRIGHT at Backstage.com.
Fit is a play about three generations of women, all at the age of twenty. Mary tends to her grieving grandfather, Fiona grapples with motherhood, and Lauren prepares to flee. Celtic music, dresses, and mental disorders pass through all three women. Will this granddaughter, mother, and grandmother, all at the age of twenty, overcome their ghosts and find a good fit? Austin's play celebrates the tradition of Celtic music and the uniquely comical and often mystical culture of Scotland. Also, it explores the deeply rooted psychological emotions tied into a woman's quest for beauty and physical perfection — emotions that defy age, time, and country.
