THE HISTORY ROOM by Charlie Thurston

directed by Pesha Rudnick

Doors: 1:30pm


We should always keep our promises, right?  In this dark, fantastical comedy, Steve made a promise to kill his best friend, Helen, if she descends into dementia like her mother. Now, 20 years later, while navigating the many faces of Helen's illness, her stubborn caregiver husband, her estranged daughter, and the blood-thirsty ghost of his own son, Steve must determine Helen's fate. Part farce, part magical realism,The History Room by Charlie Thurston explores honor, loss, the integrity of memory, and who should decide how it ends.


The History Room is presented in partnership with Creede Repertory Theatre.
