About This Show

Dread Awakening brings together four of theater’s most exciting young playwrights — Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Clay McLeod Chapman, Eric Sanders, and Justin Swain — and pairs them up with directors Arin Arbus, Amanda Charlton, Jessica Davis-Irons, and Pat Diamond. Bound by their shared love of the macabre and the supernatural, these up-and-coming artists came together to present their unique styles and approaches towards conveying onstage the horror of the known… and the unknown. In these four new plays, you will meet a boyfriend who refuses to reveal his true face, a dead best friend who won’t stay dead, a professional who grows unnaturally obsessed with his client, and a young couple experiencing horrific events in a car on a deserted highway.

The four short horror plays in this program are more funny than frightening.
