VOODOO is the story of three women - Donahue, Clark and Spud
- who are working together on a mystery project. As they hammer, saw and
put together the pieces of a large figure, the sound of voodoo drums grows
louder in the background. Their work becomes more intense as they near
completion because, at the same time, they are piecing together - through
seemingly detached inner monologues - the frightening secret of the most
cryptic man in their lives.
Three interweaving stories form the pieces of a haunting puzzle. As
voodoo drums resonate, the women work together to construct what appears
to be a giant doll. Each awaits the arrival of the one man in her life
who introduced her to love, fear and blood rituals.
First produced in 1989 at the Vancouver Fringe Festival
