De Profundis

What’s in the Box?

Deprofundis is a one-act show about one boy’s boxed up need for connection. Directed by Morgan McKenzie Kauffman and performed by an ensemble of 6, it tells the story of Josh, his sister Leah, and the dark depths each are willing to go to connect. 

Dark and haunting, this production pulls from film noir styles, simple magic and suspense to bring audiences down into “the depth” of loneliness.
