Bell at the Back of Her Throat
Cass wakes up from a dream to find her hands are burnt having seen a vision of Greenville engulfed in flames. No one believes her, but smoke has started descending on the town. People are leaving, never to be heard from again. Meanwhile, the Director of Tourism is determined to keep tourists out of the town. Bell at the Back of Her Throat is an examination of patriarchy, witchcraft, and xenophobia through the Cassandra myth.
This production contains adult themes and violence and will use theatrical haze.
