Show Info

By The Three Sardines
Directed by Nadiya Atkinson

With Melia Hagino, Jasper Pershing, Alice Zelenko, and Francie Brewster

It began with The Show. The star-hopping sci-fi series that seized American hearts one television set at a time. In 1969, a group of housewives compose forbidden love stories. In a Y2K bedroom, two teens write questionable fanfiction. CRINGE is a celebration of intergenerational fandom and liberative queer worldbuilding with a hearty dose of camp and a sprinkle of…well. Cringe.

Producing Company

Fishmarket Theatre Co.

The Three Sardines (Playwrights) are a few Fishmarket Theatre Co. fellows writing brand new works that are bold, sci-fi-inspired, multidisciplinary, and clown-based. Their pieces have been performed at the O’Neill Theater Center, the Ripped Bodice, and Odd Hours Theater Company. Current pieces in development include Airport Play (A Musical), Confession, and a mini-series, Another Space Oddity.

Nadiya Atkinson (Director; she/hers) is a director and visual artist from a houseplant and immigrant household. Her recent work employs tactility, bold patterns, and site-specificity to navigate her relationship with geography and community. Recent credits include: Insertion (Connelly Theater), Bipolar Badass (Theatre Row), Museum (Fishmarket Theatre Co.), Parking Lot Fairies (The Chain). She’s worked at Theatre for a New Audience producing the 360 Viewfinder dramaturgical publication and has been in arts administration at the O’Neill Theater Center, the Vineyard, Williamstown Theatre Festival, and Signature Theatre Company. Nadiya is a founding member of Fishmarket Theatre Co. and holds a BA in Theatre with Honors from Williams College.
