Be in the WORLD PREMIERE of a new work!
Learn about the rewards and challenges of creating a character from the ground up, and working with a developing script.
Brief Plot Summary: The Mortanas, a family of scientists from a galaxy far away, arrive on earth for their latest anthropological experiment. They’re here to learn about humans, and their ability for both compassion and destruction. They’ve taken over a local escape room and have transformed it into a lab for various tests on their unknowing subjects. So when Iris, a teenage girl and escape room enthusiast, shows up for her 14th birthday party with her two best friends, Mickey and Daphne, she doesn’t suspect an alien invasion to be the reason for the recent changes to the escape room. But it’s not long before the kids, along with several hostages trapped along the way, learn that this escape room is much more than they bargained for.
Staged Performance: The week will culminate in the WORLD PREMIERE of ESCAPE! for an audience filled with family, friends, and industry guests!
