A woman inherits a brooding estate and she journeys through its many rooms, uncovering her family’s dark secrets. Like all houses in tales such as these, it has a history and there are more than skeletons in the closet.
We Go Mad features multiple puppetry techniques including cinematic shadow play, modified bunraku, and object manipulation to bring this enchanted world to life.
Following the success of her first play, Scary Mary and the Nightmares Nine, Amy Escobar brings Seattle audiences another eerie fantasia filled with old school theatrical magic. This time, she is starring in her own version of the classic haunted house tale, articulating the felt experience of hauntings that linger in the body and are passed down from generation to generation.
