Come see us transform HPT into an art gallery for a show by a dissident Chinese conceptual artist, a man who was imprisoned and tortured for an art piece in which he organized an imaginary protest.

Or . . . perhaps that's what we're doing.

The New York Times calls Caught, by Christopher Chen, an "intricately constructed, unrelentingly destabilizing puzzle of a play." We think it's dazzling, shocking, and unmissable.

Directed by Ken Webster, the show features Norman Tran, Rebecca Robinson, and Robert Pierson.
