New Play - written to be performed online
What happens if an online class steals a little bit of each of its students’ souls—forcing them to spend all of eternity together in Zoom?
What could go wrong when a group of patients at the Sunnyvale Insane Asylum decide to put on an evening of Edgar Allen Poe works for the public? A lot. With tongue-in-cheek comedy, and a host of kooky characters, this wild romp provides a uniquely theatrical take on such Poe classics as “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Raven,” and many more. Beware, though, there are surprises within, and things may not always be what they seem. Muhahaha!
Portrayed in a fantasy world, five confused participants wake up with no memory of their past life. The doctor explains that each is here willingly, and that they are all being compensated for their participation in a research study. Once the experiment begins and they find out that to lose is to die, all five do what they must to survive the experiment.
