King Nigel's Nervous Breakdown

Solo Show · muse & ire · Ages 15+ · 64 mins · United States of America

one person show

New York City, 1981: Punk is eclipsed by "Post-Punk” as Bowery musicians experiment with genre fusion and the avant-garde. Reluctantly admitted to a psychiatric hospital after a shocking public meltdown, post-punk singer King Nigel recounts the painful truth of being abandoned by her vagabond parents as a child. Searching for community, she dives into the Bowery music scene where she defiantly remakes herself into a new entity that is more of a tempered suit of armor than an honest reflection of who she is inside. Written and performed by Satu. Directed by Rantz A. Hoseley. A Muse & Ire production.
