a mile in the dark

A World Premiere by Emily Schwend

Directed by Georgette Verdin


November 11 - December 11, 2022

Jess's stepmother Carol was a cheerful woman whose unexpected passing has left Jess searching for answers. Can something in Carol's life explain her untimely death? Originally slated to be produced in Interrobang’s 2020-2021 season,  Interrobang and Rivendell have joined forces to finally bring this eerie and unsettling new play to life. A MILE IN THE DARK is about the people we think we know but don't and the hard truth sitting in plain sight.
