Panic feeds on the aesthetics of the lowest of the low-budget horror movies, one in which there's not enough money to finish building the central monster. Here, a mother and her two children, the last remnants of an unclassifiable family, attempt to recover the key to their safety deposit box from the hands of the dead. All their savings have been trapped in this box. The journey to regain the slippery key is a fatal cocktail of desperate measures, from legal and religious to psychotherapeutic and the paranormal.
Panic is presented as part of BAiT (Buenos Aires in Translation), an international theatrical collaboration bringing together four of the most dynamic playwrights from Buenos Aires, Argentina (Lola Arias, Federico León, Rafael Spregelburd, and Daniel Veronese) with four U.S.-based directors (Brooke O'Harra with her company The Theatre of a Two-Headed Calf, Jay Scheib, Yana Ross and Juan Souki) to present a repertory program of English language world premieres. This is the first time that any of these remarkable playwrights will have their plays presented in the United States.
