The Feather in the Web is an unpredictable take on infatuation and self-discovery. Skewering our obsession with couples and careers, it asks us how much we are willing to give (and lose) for love. Nick Coyle’s play The Feather in the Web is a playful, disturbing and yet surprisingly hopeful coming-of-age story. It’s part picaresque, part fable – a journey from silence to a full throated ROAR.
