You wanna know what the future looks like?
Samantha does. Seventeen, maybe pregnant and hopelessly alone, Sam can’t fight the feeling that a dark force is pushing her towards disaster. Her dad means well but is literally (and figuratively) asleep -- her big sister doesn’t mean well and isn’t apologizing for it - and her boyfriend? He’s got a bright future that does NOT include Sam or their hypothetical unborn child. Then Sam meets Hudson, a Satan-loving heavy-metal wannabe musician, who seems to understand her pain -- and more importantly, shares her crippling sense of impending doom.
Clouds gather, lightning strikes and heavy metal rocks in this daring new musically-charged play about the void in all of us.
Playwright Mark Schultz wrote this story based on a bold, strange premise: “...what would it be to write a play that wasn’t about the Devil, but somehow was the Devil?” Curious what that means? Let Horse Head show you this July.
