Background


Following its off-Broadway premiere, Slackline Productions brings The Werewolf of Washington Heights to London for its international debut. 'Wolf' explores the universal themes of war, immigration, deportation, racism, misogyny, terrorism, civil rights, and civil disobedience that we, as an international audience, can't help but relate to... and find frighteningly familiar.

Synopsis


“Oh Selene …

Men and their towers

own the Earth

but borrow the sky.

Their very existence

a courtesy

of you.”


Two blocks west there are hipsters wearing man-buns and babies.


And two blocks east there are dog fights and drug busts.


This is the line. This is the cusp. It's urban America.


The Werewolf of Washington Heights is a New York City-based tale, taking place in the not-so-distant future.


In turns a family drama, a political statement and a surrealistic movement piece exploring the story of the Wild Woman archetype, 'Wolf' tells of a teenager gone missing and a family gone mad.
