A long, long time ago, Leda makes love to a swan. 3,000 years later, Michelangelo paints a picture. 350 years later, Rudolph buys it. 130 years later, Dave and Fiona stand in a museum, gazing at what remains. Set in a world of bizarre romantic obsessions and everyday ineptitude, 99 WAYS TO FUCK A SWAN explores the dark corners of desire and the eternal mysteries of love.
“You have to write things that scare you, write things that make you uncomfortable, squeamish, so you finish and can’t believe you wrote that.” – Kim Rosenstock on 99 WAYS TO FUCK A SWAN, LA Stage Times
The Illyrian Players Theatre Company was founded on a philosophy of sex-positivity by Artistic Director Carly D. Weckstein in 2011. The Illyrian Players believe in re-claiming theatre as a subversive art form that can impact the world we live in. Illyrians are committed to telling relevant stories with passion, intelligence, creativity, heart and purpose.
