In this Commedia dell’arte inspired piece incorporating masks, music and movement, Alex and his vicious gang of Droogs wreak merciless violence wherever they turn. Eventually, this unmitigated violence leads to murder. Once in prison, Alex is forced to make a choice; either remain locked-up or be released back into the world and face the loss of everything he loves.



In this dark, uncomfortably witty tale of life imitating art, Katurian, the author of grisly short stories, has been called into question regarding a slew of child murders—murders which horrifyingly resemble those depicted within his works. Katurian will do anything to preserve the existence of these stories—even at the expense of this own life.

    A wealthy young woman, invites two strangers to join her feast commemorating the death of her parents. but her dark purpose remains unclear. All that will change tonight when two damaged souls find their way to her table. If they are able to last till the end of the meal each will get $20K, but there is always a catch. Tensions rise, true colors are revealed and the main course is not the only thing with claws.
