SHELTER

September 19-22, 8pm
Plays & Players Theatre

 

Five artists take shelter in an abandoned theater. Bound by cutthroat artistic integrity, their dreams and delusions flourish. But there are cracks in the foundation, there’s blood on the canvas - the outside world is seeping in. Drip Symphony and Plays & Players present an original play, Shelter.

Shelter is the story of a group of artists living together in an abandoned theater, brought together by a shared sense of artistic integrity. It follows their lives as they create prolifically while their dreams and delusions grow wild inside their home. The show explores the value of art, the nature of creation, and the power of physical boundaries to shape our realities. Shelter is presented using an immersive design where the entire theater is transformed into performance space, and the audience, seated on stage and scattered throughout the house, lives among the action.
