The Snatchening
By
Jeremy Kareken
Directed by Tony Caselli

Join us for a reading of Broadway Playwright Jeremy Kareken’s eerie, funny, sci-fi play, The Snatchening. In this unsettlingly humorous tale Miles returns from an extended stay at an inpatient psychiatric facility to find Becky, his ex-wife, troubled by their son's behavior. Seemingly overnight their son has become functional and compliant. As they and two therapists get involved, they become aware of a dangerous new psychiatric protocol that no one seems to have prescribed, and a malevolent entity that seeks to alter our humanity.  What will the fate of the planet be?

This reading will be held in-person at the Williamston Theatre! No reservations necessary. Suggested donation of $10 at the door.

Mark your calendars for all the Dark Nights in Billtown this season - February 13, 2023 and April 10, 2023.
