You wanna know what the future looks like? Samantha, 17 and possibly pregnant, longs for solid ground—but she’s haunted by the sense that nothing will last. Her college-bound boyfriend wants to go sing on The Voice, her dad’s asleep on the couch, and her older sister’s in treatment. When Sam befriends a tattooed musician, has she found someone who understands this fallen world? With black humor and black metal, this gripping new play gives form to a gathering darkness.

Audience Advisory: Contains strong language and violence. Includes the portrayal of smoking using a non-tobacco product. This play also contains loud live music.  Earplugs are available directly inside the entrance of the theatre on both levels.  Audience members with assistive listening devices are advised to adjust accordingly.
