Project:Theatre presents the U.S. premiere of a historical horror story about Unity, a small town struggling to survive the plague in Post-WWI Europe. More…
In the fall of 1918, a world ravaged by World War I was blindsided by a mysteriously deadly plague. The "Spanish Flu" cut down everyone in its path, wiping out far more than had been killed in battle during the war. The small town of Unity is under quarantine and the borders are sealed. Even mail from overseas is burned. When the disease descends, despite the precautions, the town-folk of Unity have only each other to turn to. Part Gothic romance, part pandemic horror story, Kevin Kerr's UNITY (1918) is an epic chronicle of this remarkable chapter of human history.
