"Talking Masks (Oedipussy)" involves a son, two mothers and an absent father who, in exploring the intertwined fates of their family, fuse two of the world’s most enduring myths: the tragedy of Oedipus, and the harrowing tale of half-brothers Isaac and Ishmael. What unfolds is a wild progression of rapid-fire interactions that expose as much as they mask about the “charactors”.

Adam Seelig is a poet, playwright, stage director, and the founder of One Little Goat Theatre Company. Born and raised in Vancouver, Seelig has also lived in Northern California, New York and Jerusalem. He is the recipient of a Commonwealth Fellowship for his work on Samuel Beckett’s manuscripts. In addition to Talking Masks (now published by BookThug), Seelig's plays include Antigone:Insurgency (Toronto 2007) and All Is Almost Still (New York 2004).
