Six Performers in Search of an Ending revolves around six famous performers who died on stage and now occupy the Bysshe Theatre, hopelessly reliving their past glories. This project focuses on themes of mortality and legacy, with the concept of how each of these characters are remembered today being the very thing that keeps them bound to the theatre.

This production contains adult language and violence involving swordplay.
