About This Show

Written and performed by Becky Poole, Murder, Hope is a new play incorporating Neuroplasticity research, superhero mythology, family history and Appalachian murder ballads, presenting an impassioned collage of compelling characters who all have in common a distinct lack of balance.

The show connects emotional and intellectual dots between these concepts, pulling them into a cohesive piece using, personal stories, character work from case studies, experimental movement based on Neuroplastic therapy, Batman comic books, and creative acoustic sound design featuring the musical saw. It is a show bent in the experimental theatre direction, steeped in an absurd sense of humor, but grounded in truth (factual and emotional).
