The stories of two people, each haunted by inner voices. Visitations transforms the hall into the interior world of the mind in a pair of tender and powerful dramas by Jonathan Berger and Dan O'Brien, directed by Grammy winner Rinde Eckert.
Theotokia takes the audience inside the mind of a man possessed by ritualistic and religious hallucinatory voices. These delusions portray the inner struggle of mental illness in a rich musical, dramatic, and philosophical counterpoint.
The War Reporter is based on the true story of Pulitzer Prize–winning photojournalist Paul Watson. Convinced that he is haunted by the ghost of an American soldier he photographed in Mogadishu in 1993, Watson seeks to rid himself of this curse.
