Selkie Play: A Staged Reading

by Kara O’Rourke

selkie poster

An original play by Kara O’Rourke named after the Irish myth of the selkie, a creature who can shapeshift between seal and human form. In the stories, selkie women are often forced to wed human men who steal and hide away their sealskin, without which they cannot return to the sea. Through this mythology, the play explores themes of gender, sexuality, hetero/cisnormativity, and the desire to reclaim one’s own identity after it’s been stolen.
