About This Show

Recent Tragic Events is a quirky and dark comedy set in Minneapolis on the evening of Sept. 12, 2001. Waverly, an attractive advertising executive and Andrew, an awkward, yet oddly-endearing airport bookstore manager are meant to go on a blind-date. The idea of going out evolves into an evening in, as Waverly becomes increasingly concerned about her twin sister, a New York resident who’s been unaccounted for since 9/11. With the arrival of uninvited, yet obnoxiously-charming neighbor Ron and his oddly-silent ‘house-guest,’ Nancy, the date begins to unravel. The question of fate vs. free will gets entangled amidst a slew of shocking coincidences, an unexpected visit and one bizarre turn after another in this existential exploration by Craig Wright.
