About this Event

The Murder Play with Jack and Melissa is a new play by Matthew McLachlan

In a cabin, on a mountain, during a rain storm, Melissa wakes up to find herself zip-tied to a chair and in the company of a kind-hearted serial killer named Jack... and he just wants a friend. This comedy explores the outrageous things we do to not feel so lonely and the outrageous people we do it with.

The NOW Collective is a theatre company providing a collaborative environment for artists to develop and share new stories. The NOW Workshop Series is a new program designed to be a step between reading and world premiere. This is an important stage of play development. We are teaming up with two playwrights from last season's NOW Reading Series and giving them the opportunity to get their play on its feet for the very first time. Additionally, each production will focus on a specific design element that is inherent to successful story telling of the individual play. The design focus for The Murder Play with Jack & Melissa is Props/SFX.
