A huge thank you to our April storyteller, Zachary Desmond, who shared a reading of his original full-length play, Troglobites, directed by Henry Gottfried and read by Piper Rae Patterson, Felix Teich, Danyel Geddie, Julian Robertson, Steven Conroy, Ali Lopez-Sohaili, Vann Dukes, Kassandra Cruz, and Gabriel Torres.

It was absolutely thrilling to be back in person, after coming together late last fall, while continuing to bring online storytelling programs to audiences around the globe. We got to hear Zachary’s play over Zoom last winter and were honored to bring to life in its newest version with another brilliant artistic team!


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. 

Our live events are tickets and virtual events are donate-what-you-will; in all cases, proceeds are shared with the artists and, when applicable, nonprofit partner organizations.
