Pig Iron Theatre Company presents the world premiere of The Path of Pins or The Path of Needles, an immersive performance along a fairy-tale-inspired path of pregnancy on the grounds of Rigby Mansion.

Conceived in collaboration with filmmaker Josephine Decker, the piece is a fantastical foray into the world of pregnancy, exploring the complex decisions that mothers must make as they navigate the joys, terrors, and uncertainties of being pregnant.

The show is co-directed by Pew Fellow Dan Rothenberg and features an ensemble cast that includes Fellow Alexandra Tatarsky.

This production is part of the curated 2022 Philadelphia Fringe Festival. Patrons with limited mobility can be accommodated.
