An incomprehensible event: every person in the audience of a high school play falls unconscious–all but one. Using interviews with witnesses, loved ones, first responders, and the investigators pursuing the case, a theatre ensemble brings the story of the strange event to life, documentary-style. But as the strands weave together into an increasingly dangerous web, it becomes clear that this phenomenon might not be entirely in the past.
Unnerving, exhilarating, and wildly inventive, you’ve never walked into anything quite like Trap.
“The whole play is a spoiler,” says Nick Hoffa, South Pasadena High School drama director. “I’m uncomfortable even talking about it right now – I just don’t want to give anything away. All I’ll say is it’s a really fun ride and the cast has come up with amazing ways to surprise and entertain the audience.”
There is no gore, but TRAP is a psychological horror/thriller so parental guidance for anyone under 13 is suggested. There will also be some loud sounds and strobe effects.
TRAP (directed by Nick Hoffa, with technical direction by James Jontz) will be performed five times: Nov. 3,4,10,11,12 all at 7:00PM, Little Theater, South Pasadena High School, 1401 Fremont Ave., South Pasadena, Calif.
General admission is $15. Tickets go on sale the week of October 25, 2022, and
