Playing Pretend

Jake Fenton

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

Sammy and Jason attempt to overcome the death of their friend, Teddy, as they struggle growing up. They reconnect and fallout as they grow older and they each experience visits from fairy-like creatures in their dreams. The existence of these creatures, how they relate to Teddy's disappearance and their power to manipulate the world around Sammy and Jason, cause them to each doubt their own reality.

What happens when the imaginary friends of our childhood don't want to be forgotten?

This production is recommended for ages 12 and above.
