We apologize for the cancellation of the November 11 performance. The rest of the run will continue as scheduled with Karl Reinhardt in the role of Hamilton Hunt. The casting change is not Covid-related. All members of the cast and crew are fully vaccinated.

A shocking ancestral connection revealed during the taping of a reality podcast incites a series of surprising negotiations and unanticipated antics among its participants.

The host of “Chasing the Dead” is Glenn Weber, a former “influencer” and erstwhile MTV emcee who attempts to finesse his guests - two high-profile, straight married couples, one black and one white - while wrestling with the demands of unseen supervisors in the Control Room. When Mosiah Wilson, a former all-star pro football player and his wife, professor and activist Aaliyah Levin-Wilson, meet home-maker and former prosecutor, ‘Muggs’ Moriarty Hunt and her husband, Hamilton Hunt, a high-profile lawyer whose presumably illustrious family tree is under scrutiny, a power struggle ensues. Individual allegiances seem to sway and shift over culpability for the legacy of slavery and the debate over reparations.

Tickets are $22 online, or Pay-What-You-Can at the door.
