Synopsis

The Rabbit Hole Society is a secret society of storytellers meeting in unique locations once per season. Meetings are immersive by nature, allowing audience members to explore trinkets and interact with society members. During each meeting, society members present three original short plays themed to the season.

History

Growing up, I loved the friendship and trusted inner circles portrayed in the films Now and Then and Little Women (1994). I wanted to create a secret society of storytellers who brought original short plays to life. Spending a lot of time in the development phase of writing, I had seen my plays go through countless readings. Readings were always simple and meant to be a work in progress. I wanted to create a reading that was a finished product. Framing play readings as a secret society meeting allows the audience to be a part of an immersive environment where they are welcomed into a safe space to hear new stories come to life.
