A teacher has barricaded herself in her house while her neighbors in her tiny Texas town mass to kill her … and lucky you – you’re trapped in there with her.
Here’s what some have said about this show:
“In Megan Merrill’s flawless performance, Anna’s shifts between sympathetic vulnerability and deep-seeded rage throw both her innocence and her sanityinto question … the play inflicts a devilish torture on the imagination.” – Marissa Oberlander, Chicago Reader
“Megan Merrill gives a quietly powerful tour de force … Anna is also immersed in psychological darkness, and this is the darkness that haunts long after you’ve left the theater.” – Zach Freeman, New City
“A chilling experience … you feel like you’re stuck in that dang living room with her, exposed and susceptible to the lurking danger outside.” – Nina Metz, Chicago Tribune
