After Harold’s Halloween party is abruptly cancelled, two couples – Marti with Georgia and Nik with Hon – have to fake smiles, finish their guacamole, and avoid the breakup conversation hanging over them – until drinks start flowing and the games begin. Will the shattered glass and ghosts of their pasts tear apart their current relationships? Is “The Monster Mash” the queer anthem we need for 2019? Come find the answers to these questions and more in this remix of the queer theatre canon.
