About the Show
The Wild Project presents a new play about the tangled intersections between men and women; sex and violence; desire and repulsion.
The residents of Ivy Dunes are used to disappearing acts—with each hurricane, a little more of their narrow barrier island washes away. But when a young woman's disappearance leads to a gruesome discovery, the police descend, the ocean encroaches, and the residents of this barrier island community struggle to find their footing in the ever-shifting landscape.
"What's enthralling about Vieh's play is the character study that is unveiled…Where 'Barrier Islands' struggled was the pacing…Director Zi Alikhan was thrown challenge after challenge. For the most part, Alikhan found solutions…Chemistry aside, Force and Jonas needed to create distinct characters that were different and easily recognizable. Jonas seemed to capitalize on this a bit better."
