“Katie and Hannah love murder. They go to bed listening to podcasts about serial killers; they clutch blankets glued to gruesome documentaries. They're in deep. Burrowing beneath the skin, beneath the guts, beneath the veins and blood and mess of flesh. They're not sure if they can stop, and they're not sure if they want to.”

Dead Girls Rising is a furious coming-of-age punk cabaret show about trying to survive in a violent patriarchy, our deepest fears and how we seek to control them.

It's a play about holding your breath as you walk home at night. It's a play about the edges of us and how the world sharpens them.
