Video: SLUMBER PARTY by Elizabeth Doss, UT New Theatre, March 5, 9 and 11, 2017
Three teen girls coerce one another into a suicide pact to end their meaningless existence. On a mountainside in New Mexico, wonder transcends their tragedy as they find new life by leaving the world behind.
Slumber Party contains mature themes and language. The running time is approximately one hour.
