The Pumpkin Pie Show & Commencement
Written by Clay McLeod Chapman
Performed by Hanna Cheek and Clay McLeod Chapman
A series of mind-boggling, sometimes creepy, bedtime tales come to life in Clay McLeod Chapman’s riveting, in-your-face evening of storytelling, The Pumpkin Pie Show. Intensity and intimacy collide in this thrilling work, leading up to a Sunday performance of “Commencement” which reveals the horrors three women experience in the wake of a high school tragedy.
Each evening will feature a different set of short stories. Come see all three!
Disclaimer: expect everything but Pumpkin Pie.
