Very intense and left me rather emotionally drained, but I liked it.

Very well acted, but somewhat unnecessary surprise at the end....

Quotes & Highlights

“Under Deiorio’s unflinching direction, with fierce fight choreography by Scott Cummins and Julia Neary, the fearless actors forge a mighty bond as a pair that has lived together for many years on a New Zealand farm, and endured jealousy, loneliness and a period of wartime separation.” -Chicago Sun-Times
“It’s the emotional wringer that they put themselves through before that baptismal coda that truly impresses.” -Chicago Tribune
“The violent sexual action is equally disturbing and fascinating because it is a love story. Within their passionate frenzies, Fowler and Bozzuto show complete trust. Their intimacy is shocking and endearing. Their response is primal and honest.” -Chicago Theatre Beat
“Skin Tight, a new work by the new company Cor Theatre, is the most perfectly astounding piece of theater I have seen since Goodman’s “The Iceman Cometh”. I can’t recommend it highly enough. It should extend, it should tour. It is scary, moving and touching. Go see it. You won’t get a word about the plot out of me. Figure it out yourself. That is always half the fun. The floor is covered with wrestling mats. There is a bathtub, some apples, and a very sharp knife. Enough said." -Chicago Stage Style
Skin Tight is one of those little gems that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. It ekes out the power of live theatre magnificently. What a engrossing hour of theatre! I can’t imagine a finer off night show.” -Chicago Critic
“For me, this gem quite accurately reflects a single average day for a couple—its fights, lulls and rushes of passion—only with the theater’s harrowing urgency and perpetual threat.” -New City Stage
