Mickey & Sage

Written & Directed by Sara Farrington

This four-scene, 60-minute piece lays bare the way that the minor differences that kids note about their playmates’ home lives take on greater weight and power as childhood ends. --- The Village Voice

Mickey’s dad and Sage’s mom are really, really good friends. Every day after school, Mickey’s dad drops Mickey off at Sage’s house and the two kids (played by adults) are forced to play together in Sage’s tightly fenced-in backyard while the parents are “hanging out.” The kids spend the endless hours rationalizing adult behavior, making sense of the cosmos, spying on their disturbing neighbors and surviving each other. Both funny and tragic, Mickey & Sage examines the clarity, beauty and brevity of childhood by constantly asking, “What happens to people?”
