One Act Play Festival
A mad prince trapped in a tower. An ailing doctor of alchemy obsessed with bodily fluids. A tennis player and her coach slowly melting into the same person.
Hell Meets Henry Halfway is a tournament of malcontents, a competition of deadly backhands and screaming tantrums in a battle to prove who cares least and who laughs last.
"...prodigious talent and discipline."
-The Village Voice
After critically-acclaimed premieres in Philadelphia and New York and an Eastern European tour through Lithuania and Poland, Pig Iron brings its wildly-acclaimed show to the University of Virginia.
For this collaboration, Pig Iron joins forces with playwright and rising star Adriano Shaplin, the founder of the Riot Group. The result is a deluge of words, a heady cocktail of florid insults and absurd cruelties dressed in tennis whites. Expect verbal fireworks from the Pig Iron ensemble and Shaplin's razor-sharp script.
"Absurd, unbalancing and exhilarating... Hell Meets Henry Halfway is a Tilt-a-Whirl of a show that leaves you dizzy and means to."
-The New York Times
Hell Meets Henry Halfway earned a 2005 OBIE Award and was named "Best New Play of 2005" by Philadelphia Weekly
