Resident playwright Jen Silverman works with composer Max Vernon and director Mike Donahue on My Father the Speeding Bullet: Nincest, a provocative, irreverent exploration of trauma, its aftermath, and its insidious reconfiguration into glamor. When Anais Nin was nine, her father left. When she was thirty, he returned—and they began a passionate and secret love affair. Nincest is a darkly comedic, gender-bending, play-with-songs in which the part of Anais is written for Pig Iron co-founder Dito Van Reigersberg.
