Tightrope by Megan Fevurly

Directed by Shea King

Family traditions and dynamics take center stage in the University of Idaho production of “Tightrope” written by Megan Fevurly and directed by Shea King, for seven performances from Feb. 3-7, 2016.

Fevurly is an Master of Fine Arts playwriting candidate and distance student in Theatre Arts at UI. Though she doesn’t have experience walking the high wire, she has held a variety of theatre positions, both on stage and off. She currently works as a fundraiser for the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.

The script was inspired by the true story of a tightrope artist who wanted to cross Niagara Falls without a safety net, despite the fact his great-grandfather had fallen to his death years before in a similar stunt.

Fevurly is drawn to theater and playwriting, in particular, for its visceral and instantaneous power to engage an audience. “Theater has always been where I’ve found discussion and the freedom to express ideas and opinions,” Fevurly said.

“Tightrope” director Shea King is a UI Master of Fine Arts directing candidate. The cast featured Shalonia Rosen, David Lenz, Sean Hendrickson, Brynna Soth and Hunter Price, all students within UI Theatre Arts.
