About the show

In this dark comedy, a millennial getaway falls apart in the presence of the ghost of a young girl that only one character— despite his best efforts— is able to see.   More…

From the show:

This high-octane, heartfelt and delightfully bizarre production deals with a group of six 20-something-year-old friends who gather in a mountain cabin to enjoy a well-deserved vacation. It's just they can't seem to enjoy anything, really. What is supposed to be a fun and carefree evening evolves into a drunken circus of attempted infidelity, nonsense, and weird religion. This all takes place under the watchful gaze of a young girl who only shows herself to one person, while he steadily and hilariously loses his grip on reality in the company of his oblivious friends. The nature of shame, sexuality, loyalty, intoxication, privilege and faith are all explored in this achingly funny new play.

"Dramatically underdeveloped and with its cryptic paranormal distraction, it never really adds up to more than a minor take on contemporary relationships. The youthful cast all energetically attack their underwritten twenty something roles with exaggerated flair."
