A Piper premiere, written and directed by John P. McEneny, with original music by Brazilian composer Dario Eskenazi. “Mr. Splitfoot” is a work of physical theatre inspired by the Fox sisters from upstate NY, who as young girls in the 1850’s literally conjured the spiritualist movement into being. The play takes us back to the mentality of mid-19th century America, its twin preoccupations with science and the afterlife, and the dawn of media-spawned celebrity. “Mr. Splitfoot”’s kinetic staging resurrects the sisters’ strange and nearly forgotten story, a suspense replete with mystics, hucksters and fantastic-but-true twists of fate.
