InBocca Performance is pleased to announce the World Premiere of LIKE DEMONS, a brand-new show from playwright Maggie Lou Rader and director Alice Flanders.
We’ve all learned in history class that the Civil War pitted brother against brother. This autumn, leave the history books behind and learn the untold real-life story of the women who hid their true selves and dressed like men to give their lives for their country and Eight for what they thought was right. Focusing on Sarah Emma Edmonds (Nurse and Spy in the Union Army,) playwright Maggie Lou Rader brings the same careful study to the women of the Civil War as she did to Mary Shelley in the Know Theatre’s 2018 hit production of Mary’s Monster.
Come join us for a swashbuckling, emotionally charged adventure you definitely didn’t learn about in high school! Starring eight Cincinnati favorites: Elizabeth Carman, Esther Cunningham, Hannah Gregory, Ashley Morton, Ryan-Chavez Richmond, Chaslee Schweitzer, Rory Sheridan, and Kate Stark.
LIKE DEMONS will run Friday, November 22nd through Monday, November 25th. All performances are at 7:30 P.M. at Leapin Lizard (724 Main St, Covington, KY 41011).
Tickets are $15, and the show is appropriate for most ages (please be advised there is light cursing and stylized depictions of war and violence.)

InBocca Performance utilizes experimental theatre methods to create devised works highlighting women specifically, which build actors’ craft and produce a unique experience for the audience; all under general direction from producer Caroline Stine.
History of the Company
InBocca Performance humbly began as the Cliffview Players in a basement in 1997 and became a main stage company in 2008. Notable past performances for the Ft. Thomas Community Theatre were Peter Pan in 2008 and Into the Woods in 2010. Artistic Director Caroline Stine began working with young actors to devise theatrical pieces in the summer of 2011 at The Village Players in Ft. Thomas, KY. In 2012, they created The Maid of Orleans, an emotionally charged production about Joan of Arc. The next year, they created Romeo y Margarita, a story that combined the lyricism of Shakespearean verse with the romance of the Spanish language. They then expanded to create art within greater Cincinnati, including a sellout production of Swan Lake: A Waking Dream at the
Southgate House Revival in 2015, followed by My Twisted Face at Cincinnati Fringe Festival. In 2016, InBocca performed at Cincy Fringe again with Charlie’s Girls, which built a script almost entirely from testimonies from the trials of the Charles Manson murders. In 2017, InBocca created ALICE, a dance/theatre sequel to Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland set in a Victorian asylum. Ms. Caroline Stine received her Bachelor degree from Butler University and her Masters in Contemporary Performance from Naropa University in Boulder, CO. She received theatrical training in Italy and Russia and participated in the Crisis Arts Festival in Arezzo, Italy. She is currently teaching at Northern Kentucky University and Notre Dame Academy.
