Royal Court Theatre
On a hallucinatory road trip from the Badlands to Graceland, the spirits of Elvis Presley and Theodore Roosevelt battle over the soul of Ann, a painfully shy meat-processing plant worker, and what kind of man or woman Ann should become. Set against the boundless blue skies of the Great Plains and endless American highway, RoosevElvis is a new work about gender, appetite, and the multitudes we contain. The TEAM is a Brooklyn-based ensemble dedicated to creating new work about the experience of living in America today. The TEAM’s RoosevElvis is written by Rachel Chavkin, Libby King, Jake Margolin, and Kristen Sieh. Created in collaboration with Matt Hubbs, Andrew Schneider, and Nick Vaughan. It is performed by Libby King and Kristen Sieh. Rachel Chavkin directs. Roosevelvis is now playing at the Royal Court Theatre.
