Why Are We Still Here?


5th,7th,8th,9th February 2019 6:30pm 


Four lost women find shelter in a desolate old building during a violent storm. To their surprise, the building isn't actually abandoned, and the two previous occupants are thoroughly taken by their new guests. Why Are We Still Here? is a tale of desperation, grief, found families and how hard it is to truly 'move on' from life. It's a ghost story - except the ghosts are mostly more lost than threatening.
