The Themantics Group presents the NY Premiere of Brad Fraser's Snake in Fridge, directed by Blake Lawrence.
Inspired by Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House, Fraser's play examines the sordid lives of a group of young misfits living in a creepy Victorian house. Their combined income barely covers club-going and drugs, so overdue rent is mounting. Daydreams of fame and fortune are constantly interrupted by the insidious lure of the porn industry. When one of the housemates accepts a snake to cover a debt, the snake disappears and bizarre things begin to happen. Eventually, they begin to wonder if it is the snake or the spirit of the house that is haunting them. Things come to a head when the group -- an internet porn performer, a busboy who longs to be a waiter, a nude dancer, her mentally-challenged sister and a male stripper -- discover that one of their own may be a murderer.
Please note: final performance on May 8 is at 3:00pm.
