Arts Partner: Hunger and Thirst Theatre

STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT examines the unexpected intimacy that can unfold between total strangers. The evening’s beguiling host, Frank, escorts the audience through two seemingly unrelated—but surprisingly interconnected—one-act plays: SCREWED and BOTTLING DREAMS OF THE TEARFUL DON’T-KNOWER.

Loosely inspired by The Turn of the Screw by Henry James, Screwed follows a determined police officer desperate to solve two particularly disturbing murders. His last hope is Molly, the traumatized governess, but she is equally as determined not to confess to him what happened to her that night..

And in the topsy-turvy fantasia Bottling Dreams of the Tearful Don’t-Knower, a man travels in search of a pool of tears deep within a haunted forest. But a disturbance in the deepest parts of the woods leads to a disturbance in the deepest parts of himself.
