Performed on the beaches of Southern California, Second Skin returns to the origins of theater as stories told around a fire.

When Quinn discovers her estranged mother is dying, she returns home. As she cares for her mother, Quinn wrestles with disturbing childhood memories. What is her mother’s secret? What do the Irish bedtime stories of Selkies her mother once told her really mean?
Told in three interconnected monologues, Second Skin investigates the fraught relationship between mothers and daughters, and how one mistake can reverberate across generations.
