“Fifteen years ago, I killed my sister”.  Thus begins this haunting story of pain and isolation. Before the event, you receive directions to a remote abandoned parking lot in Philadelphia.  You arrive in the night, your vehicle illuminating the empty landscape.  A man appears out of the darkness, blinded by your headlights. Through your FM radio, he begins to share the story of his journey to redemption.  You, and your car, become essential players in this theatrical nightmare as his life (re)emerges out of the darkness and silence.

"A startling, unnerving work of art that fiercely pushes the boundaries of theater." —Michael Kuchwara, Associated Press

“Rapp uses subtle, sensuous, bold and funny language … So detailed and poetic is the writing … that we buy and are powerfully moved by the whole thing.” —Donald Lyons, New York Post

COVID Safety Information

For Our Audiences

The famously reclusive poet, Emily Dickinson, lived much of her life in isolation, reluctant to greet guests or even leave her bedroom. In this limited edition at-home event, Emily reaches out to you personally through the mail over the course of five weeks.  Every few days you receive a new correspondence from Emily inviting you into her life.  Personal letters, custom art, highly personal objects, all come directly to your door, slowing opening Emily’s life as you unbox her packages.
