Writer and perfomance maker Elisabeth Houston presents a multimedia exposition of a new play organized through a sinister and hallucinatory plot structure.
“A young woman wants to die. Her father decides to appear on CNN while she is hospitalized from an overdose. After her next suicide attempt, he arrives with a tray of delicious treats to her hospital room, where she lies comatose. She awakens, eats a sweet, then promptly throws up. This is a story of love and psychosis, politics and neglect.”
Elisabeth Houston is a “mongrel writer” who hopes she may one day be a “hybrid writer,” which seems a more dignified term for aesthetic confusion. She doesn’t write. She mostly constructs vocabularies from the pen she taps and chews and sometimes the ink comes out of her mouth like a long blue worm.
