Bartlett High School’s Panther Playhouse presents Trap by Stephen Gregg. This production runs from October 24-27 at the Bartlett Performing Arts and Conference Center.
You won’t want to miss this suspenseful drama that chronicles an incomprehensible event: every person in the audience of a high school play falls unconscious--every person but one. Using interviews with witnesses, loved ones, first responders, and the investigators pursuing the case, the Panther Playhouse brings the story of the strange event to life, documentary-style. But as the strands weave together into an increasingly dangerous web, it becomes clear that this phenomenon might not be entirely in the past. Unnerving, exhilarating, and wildly inventive, you've never walked into anything quite like Trap.
