Constant State of Panic
By Patrick Gabridge
Directed by Richard Shavzin
This darkly comic love story follows two people trying to stay together, despite the insanity of the world around them-the story of a man afraid of everything, and a woman afraid of nothing other than losing her husband. A fresh, new play with a surprising surreal style, Constant State of Panic takes a twisted look at how a couple survives in a modern society thriving on fear. Lines between reality and fantasy become blurred as we journey through the looking glass of our modern NSA-era
