(CINCINNATI) – Queen City Flash, presents the quintessential Summer Blockbuster, JALZ, told by the man who lived it, from the Alzheimer’s wing of his nursing home.
Dylan grew up hearing the story from her grandfather: the summer of the attacks, his adventure at sea, that final, deadly confrontation. But his memory is failing, and his tales don’t match the town’s memory of their alcoholic Chief of Police who disappeared one summer to hunt “sea monsters.”
Family legacy takes on new life as Dylan recreates her grandfather’s tales in a final attempt to jolt his memory in this deep-sea thriller where the only thing scarier than a monster is losing your mind.
The show features local actors Daniel Britt, Hannah Sheppard, and Jordan Trovillion, with script and original music by Trey Tatum, directed by Bridget Leak. Queen City Flash (Ken Ham’s Journey to the Center of the Earth, The Complete Tom) invites you to enjoy the final weeks of summer with them, out on open water, in this new & final chapter of a Classic Summer Flick.
All performances are at Essex Studios, 2511 Essex Place, Cincinnati, OH 45206 (in Mikki Schaffner’s Photography Studio!) – Tickets are a $10-$18 sliding scale, with no one turned away due to financial hardship.
