Slowgirl

SLOWGIRL by Greg Pierce

Directed by Jennifer King

January 23 – February 24, 2019
Sacramento Premiere

Slowgirl is the story of a teenager who flees the United States to her reclusive uncle’s retreat in the Costa Rican jungle to escape the aftermath of a horrific accident. The week they spend together forces them both to confront who they are as well as what it is they are running from.

“…Pierce’s drama is carefully, deliberately paced, and director Jennifer King pushes the tempo just firmly enough to maintain what SUSPENSE or SURPRISE exists as each character’s layers of guilt and fear are revealed.” SN&R

“…A NEAR-PERFECT production of an INTRIGUING play… a two-hander that places a premium on GREAT ACTING… And these two actors PULL IT OFF PERFECTLY.” Meals From The Marketplace

 “’Slowgirl’ is a SOLID PIECE OF THEATER, and WELL WORTH SEEING.” CapRadio

“’Slowgirl’ at Sacramento’s Capital Stage boasts a pair of IMPRESSIVE PERFORMANCES, a SMART SCRIPT, and SKILLFUL DIRECTION that wrings every bit of drama out of this RICH STORY of two damaged souls battling and ultimately bonding in the jungle.” Outword Magazine

“…Engrossing and thought-provoking…Exploring questions of character and fate, the many ways tragedy can unmoor a life and the power of family to both wound and heal.” The Los Angeles Times

“[A] haunting two-hander…a genuine thrill.” Variety
