The Game of String

The Game of String explores the relationship between how we curate ourselves on social media and who we truly are in reality. In the digital world, we find ourselves in competition with others. When we die, is the digital persona we left behind authentic to who we really are? Written by Jenn Addesso | Directed by Brooke Barnes

Hopscotch

Losing herself to the afterlife, Eva and her childhood friend, Chloe, revisit their shared past and fight to keep memories of one another alive. Through honesty, pain, love, and hopscotch, they learn what it means to truly remember. Written by Joanna Cleary | Directed by Rebecca Reid

Hamlet Reworked

Adapted and performed by Gareth Potter.
