Finding Nemo Meets Predator in this Retro-Futurism Hellscape Comedy

CFF21_You Will Live Under the Sea(CINCINNATI, OHIO) –  YOU WILL LIVE UNDER THE SEA  at the 2021 Cincinnati Fringe Theatre Festival, June 4–June 19.  Every year the land gets more and more crowded. More people. More buildings. More roads and more cars. Out there, the sea isn’t crowded at all. It’s just you. And that man. And miles and miles and miles of nothing else.

From the creative force behind 2020’s award winning show Killjoy, Ohio  comes a children’s fable about our dreams for the future. PICK-OF-THE-FRINGE winners Bridget Leak, Jordan Trovillion and Trey Tatum return with a new story of the bizarre in an entirely new format.
