WILD CHILD IN THE CITY
Written & Performed by Tjasa Ferme
Directed by Ana Margineanu
September 30 – October 2, 2016
In this piece, Ferme combines her European sensibility and Kafka-esque sense of irony with down-to-earth toughness of a New York single girl who has seen it all. It is a story so unbelievable, twisted, and smelly that it must be true. The writer-performer recalls the top 10 experiences that occurred in her roughly 25 different rented apartments in New York. In the first scenario, as reported by WABC’s Eyewitness News, an intruder claims to be Tjasa’s boyfriend. In another, a subletter turns out to be a relapsed heroin addict who, in one of his fits, smears the walls with his own feces. Part dark comedy, part rant with a strong feminist twist, part immersive theater experience, Wild Child In The City proves with grit and wit that in New York City, the truth is often much stranger than fiction.
