Red Barn
Opening March 13

A supernatural amorality play with music.
March 13 - 29
Thursday - Sunday, $20 - $30*


Somewhere at the intersection of Tommy and Sweeney Todd, our original play with music upends expectations about musicals.

In 1827, in a bucolic village, Maria Martin disappeared. What followed was a series of events both macabre and surreal that culminated in the largest public hanging in English history. Based on a true story, this workshop production features a live rock band, English beer, and plenty of blood. It is not for children.

*your ticket purchase supports the development of this original play.

The fantastic story includes shipwrecks, pirates, a king who uses the skulls of his victims as interior design, an abandoned baby, and a knight in rusted armor fighting for love. At every turn, Pericles confronts events both grotesque and miraculous as his long and brilliant history unfolds.
