David Hancock was described by The Village Voice as “the most audacious and provocative playwright to emerge on the Off-Broadway scene In the ’90’s.” The winner of two Obie Awards for his plays The Convention of Cartography and The Race of the Ark Tattoo, Hancock’s work also includes Leftover Future and The Sisters of Eve. Hancock lives in Minnesota and has the active support of The Foundry Theater in New York, Rude Mechanicals from Austin, Empty Space Theatre in Seattle, and New City Theatre in Seattle.
The Sisters of Eve
In collaboration with his partner, Nan Hanway, David Hancock created The Sisters of Eve, an interactive theatrical event about a New England town that disappeared. The central character is a dwarf hermaphrodite and crackpot historian who claims she is the sole survivor of a hurricane that destroyed the town of Little Pleasant Bay. She travels with a portable museum trying to prove Little Pleasant Bay did exist. During the performance audience members can choose to follow different narrative paths.
