Originally commissioned and work-shopped by American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco, this darkly humorous new work inventively spins elements inspired by modern ghost stories with an exploration of themes from the Japanese folk tales "Of a Mirror & a Bell" and "Yuki-onna". Everyday situations from riding in a hotel elevator to preparing for a blind date take on supernatural qualities. The captivating characters encounter mystical forces that collapse the distance between the real and the surreal. This magical, funny, and sometimes mind-bending creation by acclaimed playwright Steve Yockey will take you on an exhilarating, visceral journey.
The cast includes an astounding array of talent in multiple roles including Tiffany Cole, Andrew Crabtree, Coleman Drew, Katie Skelton, Adeye Sahran, CB Spencer, Michael Tauzin, and James Louis Wagner. Assistant Direction and Fight Choreography is by Jen Albert, and the play is produced by Co-Artistic Directors T L Kolman and August Viverito for The Production Company.
