The World Premiere of a new play by Laura von Holt

On a fantastical island ravaged by war, two siblings—the diminutive yet fiery Button and the oversized, militaristic Giant—wage their own private battle. Reveling in dark whimsy, Laura von Holt’s New York debut follows the two extraordinarily mismatched characters as they search for love and struggle to survive in a magical but broken land. A fairytale for the 21st century.
