Lonesome Devil is a brand new horror/farce that incorporates cinematic elements, stylized violence, and even a dream ballet. It is the terrifyingly raucous event of the Halloween season. The play tells the story of a beautiful, Satan-worshiping serial killer who kidnaps a young, born-again teenager and sets off across contemporary America in an attempt to raise the devil. Like a love-child of Quentin Tarantino, Martin McDonagh, and Marilyn Manson, Lonesome Devil is a genre-bending descent into the American fault lines of God and fear and violence -- and it's a comedy. A bloody, bloody comedy.

A show made in 24 hours and performed only twice. Amusement parks, philosophy, and past works are interwoven in this variety show performance party with cold beer, live music, and animal fantasies.
Bite size work and experiments by Xander Duell, Andrew Gilbert, Susanna Stahlmann, Jennie Liu and Jesse Bonnell.
Everything You Ever Wanted is an on-going performance event that brings together artists to collaborate for 24 hours, each time creating a new theater work under the gun. Previous versions were seen at The Collapsable Hole (R.I.P.) and The Lilian Theater.
We're doing a Halloween kickoff with a screening of Neal Jonas's long lost horror short "Elise."
"Elise" is about a teenage girl, haunted by the death of her sister at a young age, who has her life disrupted by an encounter with a person from her sister's past. As her hold on reality begins to slip, she must decide whether or not to confront the horrific truth behind her sister's death.
It features sound design from Graham Reznick, score from Nick Lesley and Daniel Martens, and a plethora of classic sterno rock tracks from BATTLESHIP.
The program for the night will also feature some creepy classics starting off with a projection of Jan Svankmajer's short film "House of Usher" on 16mm. Following that will be "Elise".
