October 27-29 and November 4-6, 2022
Four groovy teens and a dog search the woods in their van to solve a mystery while exploring drugs, queerness, and the fear that men in rubber masks are scarier than monsters. The four question the world they know, looking into the parts of their history they would rather avoid, and giving new meaning to the phrase, “Be Kind, Rewind.” One part Scooby-Doo, one part Archie Comics, and several parts Roswell Incident, this play navigates alien abductions and the stressors of teenagerhood...but like, imagine a Saturday Morning Cartoon, but like cooler?
