Devised by Whit MacLaughlin and Members of our Professional Actor Training Program
Directed by Whit MacLaughlin

Created in collaboration with and directed by Whit MacLaughlin, Artistic Director of the OBIE award-winning New Paradise Laboratories, Cold Empty Terrible is a resuscitation of a theatrical debacle embedded inside Anton Chekhov’s 1896 masterpiece, The Seagull. Members of our Professional Actor Training Program and MFA design students turn molehill into mountain by devising an original work for the stage that aims to prove that a century of theatrical experimentation must be good for something. Is it a moving spectacle of a ruined world 200,000 years in the future? Or a complete waste of time? You be the judge.

This show contains adult content, adult language, and brief nudity. Recommended for ages 17+.
