  • Servlet Gush

The first theatrical work presented in GUSH, WET’s new series that brings a piece of contemporary theatrical work from outside Seattle to be performed on their stage, is Erin Markey’s SINGLET. Markey draws on their longstanding friendship and working relationship with actor Emily Davis to create a performance that maps the bonds and hysteria of earned intimacy. Combining Markey’s singular style with a host of influences—spanning Genet’s The Maids, celebrity psychotherapist Esther Perel’s available-on-Audible couples counseling sessions, Notes on a Scandal, Elena Ferrante’s Neopolitan Quartet, and Precious Moments® Collectible Dolls—this kaleidoscopic production grapples with the desire, rivalry, vulnerability, and subterfuge that bind two people together. By turns tenacious and tender, SINGLET reimagines the economies of power between friends, families, and wrestlers.
