The Afterparty - A World Premiere by Reina Hardy
Directed by Liz Fisher

There's an afterparty at the end of the universe, and all you need to get in is a kiss...

Claire Leverrier, a poet haunted by the death of her childhood crush, reveals the secrets of the universe using a bicycle light and puppets. “The Afterparty” is a romance. Or is it a metaphor? Either way, Claire might never recover once a star steps down from the sky and invites her to a party.

The first production in this rolling world premiere by Reina Hardy (Stars and Barmen, Changelings, Glassheart) is directed by Liz Fisher (Deus Ex Machina) with dramaturgy by James Fleming and features a stellar cast including Shannon Grounds, Ja'Michael Darnell, Rommel Sulit, Valoneecia Tolbert, and Trey Deason, with set design by Ann Marie Gordon, lighting design by Patrick Anthony, media design by Andrew McIntyre, costume design by Monica Pasut, sound design by Nick Hart, production management by Melinda Parr, stage management by Michael Logue,and assistant stage management and production assistance by Kaycee Swierc. Filmed and edited by Magic Spoon Production. Music composed by Chris Guerra. Still photography by Errich Petersen.
