We last gathered to hear a play we’ll revisit live… Troglobites, by Zachary Desmond:

Somewhere in the American West, the ground opens up and swallows seven cavers. Hidden beneath glittering gems and underground rivers, something is alive and yearning to bestow an extraordinary gift. With no route to escape and no promise of rescue, the cavers must traverse the underworld, invoke their mythic ancestors, and rally together to face down the end of all things. 

We returned to our Zoom format this December to bring you a reading of Zachary Desmond’s original play, Troglobites, directed by Piper Patterson and featuring Alexander Bianchi, Kate Eberstadt, Anthony Gabriele, Helen Hood, Jake Lasser, Hannah Martin, Kelly Thomas, and Nate Wise. Original composition and sound by Kate Eberstadt and Nate Wise; lyrics and music by Hannah Martin
