Brown Box Theatre Presents: The Hotel Nepenthe
March 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Through the twisting, winding corridors of the mind lies a world both chillingly relatable and thoroughly alien. As the settings and characters shift and morph through a series of delightfully turbulent vignettes, we are drawn down a rabbit hole of the familiar and the bizarre, held captive by endless parallel universes that seep from the stage to consume our very being. Not for the faint of heart, The Hotel Nepenthe is a perilously absurd romp through the mysteries of human nature, the ripples of fairy wings and alternate realities, and the search for meaning from within the abyss.
