Very exciting — the Ateh Theater Group production of Kelly Link’s “The Girl Detective” opens tonight at the Connelly Theater (220 East 4th Street, New York, NY 10009, btw. avenues A & B).
The show will play through March 17th on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 8PM with an additional performance Monday, February 26 at 8PM.
The Girl Detective is a master of disguise. She finds missing things, chases tap dancing back robbers and eats our dreams. But in her life of intrigue and adventure one mystery remains: the whereabouts of her long lost mother. Join her on a wild journey to the underworld in this surreal, darkly funny story of loss and reunion.
Link’s dark humor leads the reader through a dreamy underworld of tap-dancing bank robbers and missing mothers to explore everyday emotional mysteries of personal loss and identity. Her writing has been compared to the likes of James Joyce, Philip K Dick and her title character to Nancy Drew.
Tickets may be purchased online or by calling 212-352-3101 or 1-866-811-4111. Tickets may also be purchased at the door 1 hour prior to the show.
