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.

We Go Mad features multiple puppetry techniques including cinematic shadow puppetry, modified bunraku, and object manipulation, to bring this enchanted world to life.

Escobar and company use their puppetry skills to evoke a horror movie on the stage in front of us. This is puppetry looking at the intertwined dynamics of love and madness.

The Devil and Sarah Blackwater is a new musical by Anthea Carns and Lauren Freman.

Singer-songwriter Sarah Blackwater's tour is rudely interrupted when the Devil comes calling about a debt: The eternal soul of her partner, Sam. In this genre-spanning musical, Sarah goes through hell and back, to discover what's really worth holding onto.

Any time Freman is on stage is absolutely electric. She’s a stunning performer.

The songs are wonderful...Anytime Sarah is singing in her concert capacity or singing about her relationships, it was great.
