About the show

The Flea Theatre presents the world premiere of a new mystery/thriller about ten students trapped together in a storm on one fateful night. More…

Ten students meet as a winter storm approaches to discuss what happened at the party that night. One of them knows, and no one’s leaving until they all figure out what to do about it. By the end of the night, friendships are tested, allegiances change, and choices are made. The right thing to do is hard to figure out. This world premiere production will be directed by Michelle Tattenbaum and will feature the Bats, the resident acting company at The Flea.

See it if you like tense naturalism. Great use of a big cast, lots of moral dilemmas with a cliff hanger ending. Acting was superb, riveting story.

Don't see it if you don't like intense arguments with some shouting. you don't like big casts. you want something upbeat. you don't want to be challenged.

Ambitious, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Relevant

Don't see it if you want to see a big Broadway musical

See it if You are interested in the complex meaning of trust and the moral dilemmas we face as humans on a daily basis. The writing was exceptional!

Don't see it if You don't want to stand outside the Flea for 90 minutes after the play talking about your own choices, that's how deeply we related to it!

See it if You like theater that makes you think about serious subjects without taking itself too seriously. Very classical.

Don't see it if You are in the mood for light entertainment.
