Dated, Dizzying, Intense

See it if Amatuer immersive theater is attractive to you, you like close quarters and intensive subject matter, and historical works.

Don't see it if You don't appreciate community theater level acting ie over-acting, very close quarters, action sometimes occurring at a dizzying pace.

Quirky, Resonant, Edgy, Dated, Clever

See it if You love ghost stories and local history, and want to experience an immersive evening with a small audience.

Don't see it if You're creeped out by being within arms length of the actors.
