Flying Swine performance of Savage in Limbo at Chill Wine Bar, Beacon NY, 12/12-12/21

Of all those who awaited the long delayed opening of the wine bar Chill, I'm sure few breathed the sigh of relief Donald Kimmel of Flying Swine was allowed to let loose once the joint finally opened its doors. Flying Swine had received a NYSCA grant, distributed by the Duthcess Arts Council, last year for a production of Savage in Limbo by Shanley in 2008. The play is set in a bar, and in a vision of seamless, site specific verisimilitude, Kimmel envisioned producing it in the wine bar - once it opened. Fortunately, Chill opened for business just a couple of months back and Savage in Limbo will have its run this month.
Below are all the details you should need:
