(CINCINNATI, OHIO) – JiNKiES! at the 2022 Cincinnati Fringe Theatre Festival, June 3–June 18. A follow-up to their 2019 hit, JINKIES! is the thrilling next adventure in the life of a very meddlesome duo. This hilarious escapade is perfect for both newcomers and returning fans alike and finally answers the question, “What if the Hardy Boys wanted to burn this shit down?”
From the creative force behind 2021’s award winning show You Will Live Under the Sea comes an opioid-fueled dive into the world of latch-key children and the haunted, dangerous places that mischief leads. PICK-OF-THE-FRINGE winners Bridget Leak, Jordan Trovillion and Trey Tatum return with a fresh look at the teen detective genre.
