About this show

Purple Bench Productions presents their second full-length play, Phyllis Nagy's Disappeared, a haunting, fast-paced thriller picked directly from the headlines. In recent years, the disappearances of women like Stacy Peterson and Natalee Holloway have been front-page news and were dramatized on crime-based television shows. These outlets often seem to come to a similar conclusion: the woman was abducted and brutally murdered. As a similar scenario unfolds in Disappeared, is everything really as it seems? What is so unsettling about the suspect, and what if he really is telling the truth? What if the woman simply decided to run away to start a new life? Purple Bench explores the lines between reality and fantasy to leave the audience guessing well after the lights have come up.
