Mar. 24 - Apr. 03
Two wounded soldiers have been abandoned on the battlefield and are trying their best to stay alive, if they’re not dead already. They keep each other company with games, stories, music, and care for each other all the while broadcasting out to a world that might not even be there anymore. Welcome to Wraith Radio.

This process will be collaborative and experimental in its initial approach as we utilize movement, music, and intimacy to delve into these characters telling this story. The show will be performed site specifically and as such adaptability is key. We will only rehearse three times a week leading up to tech and then moving to four days until we open.
