Cellar Door presents Hot Steams by Zach Wegner as part of the 18th annual New York International Fringe Festival - FringeNYC.

Braeson Herold stars in this futuristic mental ride through torture and imprisonment, finding himself jailed and dressed in a Santa suit with no memory of who he is or how he got there. His cellmate, Zach Wegner, a questionably accused mass murderer, is supposed to be in solitary confinement. Their sanity is at stake as they face an unscrupulous law enforcer played by Garrett Neergaard, a Broadway veteran who joins the production for The New York International Fringe Festival.

Hot Steams debuted in the Planet Connections Theater Festival in 2012. Accolades include Braeson Herold for Best Supporting Actor and Zach Wegner nominated for Best Actor. Revisit this "...perfect example of classic absurdist theatre that I hope some day might become a classic itself."

"The writing (by Zach Wegner) and direction (by Jaclyn Biskup) work hand in hand to create a well timed play that keeps you spellbound throughout."- Stephen Tortora-Lee, The Happiest Medium

The production is directed by Jaclyn Biskup. The creative team are Deirdre Wegner (Costume Design), Edward K. Ross (Set Design), Stephanie Sherline (Sound Design), Amith Chandrashaker (Lighting Design) and Kylie Hogrefe (Stage Management).
