A series of nested stories brings us deeper and deeper into the scary, unstable middle ground between belief and disbelief, a land where ghosts appear, people disappear, and the threat of crippling isolation lurks around every corner. Journey far into the labyrinthine passageways of memory, grief, and the unknown with this literary theatrical event that will leave you wondering who you are, which way is up, and what, if anything, do you believe.
Produced May 2015 at Cloud City.
Developed at PRELUDE 14, Mohawk Arts Collective, Gershwin Live at Dixon Place, HERE Arts Center, the Edward F. Albee Foundation, and with Smith + Tinker.
"Wonderful... Playwright Jerry Lieblich nests his spooky narratives like Russian dolls, deftly enfolding us in the show's origami structure till we're sure the dead are all around us. He and director Stefanie Abel Horowitz make the evening sensually rich—their clever production demonstrates that adding light to a room doesn't necessarily make it less frightening. ... This is why we go to thrillers: to feel competent hands giving our fearful hearts just…a tiny…squeeze." - Helen Shaw, Time Out New York, Critic's Pick
"It soothed aches and pains and brought a sense of peace, a sense of loss to my bones. I left the show feeling taller and well-rested and more expansive than when I came. And all because of a few simple, intricate, and moving stories told in low light." - Culturebot
