When a young wild girl is captured in the rainforests of Borneo, all of Holland is set abuzz. The year is 1861, and pioneering neuroscientist Charles Penworth is called upon to raise the child from the pit of her animal nature. But as Lilith learns to tame her feral heart and live amongst the glitterati of colonial Amsterdam, she begins to wonder, who, indeed, is the real savage?
Theatrical wunderkinds Sisters Grimm, creators of the sell-out, award-winning NEONFestival hitThe Sovereign Wife, take audiences on an epic, genre-defying journey – equal partsThe Elephant Man andShe’s All That.
With the title role played by Ash Flanders, star of MTC’sone-man comedyBuyer and Cellar, this bold new piece promises to be as mind-altering and caustically funny as all of Sisters Grimm’s work to date.
A Sisters Grimm production, commissioned and presented by MTC.
