Back for one more death filled Halloween weekend! Join us as we slice, stab, smother, smack, shoot, grieve, poison, rend, and bludgeon our way through every death that Shakespeare staged. All the hits and all the deep cuts! Some serious, some comic, some comically serious, and some seriously comic.
The original cast of this sold out, hilarious and action packed night returns to celebrate Halloween weekend with you, including a special pre-show trick or treat reception for kids and kids at heart before the performance on Monday, October 31st. Costumes are encouraged all weekend long!

Welcome to a high school where the in-crowd is the thin-crowd. The death of the uber-anorexic Monique, queen of the Carpenters, kicks off a scramble for the crown, and the school's hottest hottie, The Bradley. Renee, with the help of her bulimic best friend Patty, is determined to claim the crown by out-foxing her rival Jeanine and taking her body back to its pre-puberty contours. The Washington Post said, "playwright Wendy MacLeod's bitter black comedy is...sick. It's perverse. It's irreverent. And it's hilarious." Let the diet wars begin!
Cohesion Theatre Company seeks to showcase the unity that underlies much of what we consider separate. Society creates distinctions: between classical and new plays, between artistic disciplines, between companies, and between people of different race, class, and gender. CTC will examine these distinctions through the lens of live theatre with the goal of reaching a deeper understanding of what makes us individuals and what makes us all human. Cohesion actively seeks out other theatrical professionals, both individuals and organizations, and encourages cross promotion, co-production, and collaboration in every facet of the work we do.
