Annex Theatre is set to present Becky Poole’s solo performance Murder, Hope, with Carrie Morris at the helm, January 23-February 13.

Poole drew from family history, Neuroplasticity research, superhero mythology, and Appalachian murder ballads to create a collage of compelling characters who all have a distinct lack of balance.

Poole has been performing, writing, and producing sketch comedy and performance pieces around the country with sketch groups MEAT and Becky & Noelle. She is also a resident artist at Annex Theatre’s Spin the Bottle. Morris is a recent Fulbright award winner winner in the field of performance art, who’s works utilize crafted objects and electronic devices among other things.
