Mortal Instruments is a new comedy developed through a devised rehearsal process. The cast and crew, through improvisation and storytelling, have created a work that deals with death, power, occupation, and wealth. The finished play takes us through multiple scenes and scenarios in which the actors embody a plethora of roles.   

"Imagine Monty Python's Life of Brian, Caryl Churchill's Cloud Nine, and John Cariani's Almost, Maine. I'll wait. Okay. Now, imagine those three works happening simultaneously and you have Mortal Instruments. This doesn't excuse you from attending." -Sean David DeMers

This play contains adult language.
