Blending modern day struggles and fantastical folklore creatures, The Skriker is a thrilling play. Josie and Lily, two teenagers, are pursued by an ancient fairy - the Skriker - who is befriends, bewilders, and betrays them to get the one thing of value they have - Lily's unborn child. Wrapped in a fantasy and horror, at its heart, it's a story of love, loss, revenge, and the toll that depression exacts.
