A collaboratively created theatrical experience in which the audience travels through the very cemetery that inspired the performance. A mixture of contemporary scenes and moments from the past, as well as a collage of researched facts and imagined moments about the living and the dead, the forgotten and the remembered.

“Will we be comforted to lay still near our loved ones? Will we miss the living? Will we know we’re dead? Where are the answers? Let’s seek them out. Together.”

About the show: Jeremy Heere is just an average teenager. That is, until he finds out about “The Squip” – a tiny supercomputer that promises to bring him everything he desires most: a date with Christine, an invite to the raddest party of the year and a chance to survive life in his suburban New Jersey high school. But is being the most popular guy in school worth the risk?

PLEASE NOTE: Be More Chill deals with young adult issues in an honest and direct way, and includes strong language. Parental discretion is advised.

“Everything about you is going to be
Cool
And powerful
And popular
Incredible
And you will
Be More Chill.”

About the show: Travel with Everybody (chosen from among the cast by lottery at each performance) as they journey through life’s greatest mystery—the meaning of living. This modern take on the fifteenth-century morality play Everyman which features characters such as Love, Death, and Friendship, was a finalist for the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2018.

“Was that a dream or was that a vision? Were you even asleep? Or are you really dying? Is this how Death comes to you? In a dream?”
