Show Synopsis

When Cri faces losing the love of her life she unwittingly spirals time out of control. She meets an agent of the DTA (Department of Time Anomalies) and must face the decision of saving her love or saving time altogether. A hauntingly beautiful story about learning to deal with loss, grief, and the unknown.

What is a Developmental Production?

Last year’s production of While They Last was presented as a stage reading, where actors performed the show holding scripts and with minimal design elements, staging, or choreography. The show was not memorized, and new pages and script/music changes were made up until opening night. The first presentation of a new work is typically done as a reading.

This year’s production will culminate in a fully realized production with design elements, and fully directed and choreographed, building on the material written last season, the play will expand and be performed over two weekends.
