Know Theatre of Cincinnati

Direction, scenic & lighting design by Andrew Hungerford

Patrick Earl Phillips as Sam & Tess Talbot as Alicia

Three stories cross outside of Portland, OR in a pitch black comedy with an illicit affair, a couple hanging on by a thread, bears at the window, the worst curiosity shop on the west coast, and an adorable missing dog named Mr. Bundles. No one’s happy, people stop being nice, and blood spills. This mash-up of myth, missing empathy, and “good neighbors” explores what happens when the mercury rises.
