Have you ever loved a show so much that you wished you could kidnap the actors, keep them in your basement and get them to perform it again for you?
No? Just Rupert?
After a successful three week run at the Miniver Theatre, a troupe of young actors are ready and willing to let go of their most recent production and move on to bigger and better things, but Rupert isn't going to let that happen.
He loves the piece to the point of obsession and can't let their show die.
There are a few things you should know when trying to save a play from death. Thing number one: the actors aren't gonna like it.
Trapped in a basement, forced to rehearse and fearing for their lives, there is only one way for the performers to gain their freedom.
They must act their way out.
This dark, metatheatrical piece of new writing focuses on the dangers of obsession and the unavoidable ephemeral nature of theatre.
Designed to thrill and surprise, this show will leave audiences questioning the lengths they would go to for the things they love.
