The Show

During a late night break-in that goes awry, two strangers discover a hidden connection to each other and the mysterious town that has taken more from them than either fully realize.

From Trey Tatum and Bridget Leak, the creative team behind 2019’s ALABAMA MONSTER, comes a sleek “what-dunnit” about small towns, Bermuda triangles and the lengths people will go to recover lost things. Using a socially-distanced creation process, and filmed entirely thru internet conferencing, this play uses lights/sound/music/clever staging and elaborate props to create a vivid world that goes far-beyond the “Zoom Play.”
