THE ELM THEATRE PRESENTS THE WORLD PREIMERE OF “VENOM” BY Clint Sheffer
Meadow and Waylon, a newly wed interracial couple, walk into a Waffle House in rural Louisiana. Little do they know that their adventures go far beyond the hash browns. Venom is a dark comedy complete with a seedy motel room, a butcher knife, a few guns, and plenty of beer.
Back at the motel, the couple is unexpectedly held captive by a corrupt cop, Rocky, and his sidekick, Gumdrop, who have been hired to return the two back to the cult-like church Meadow escaped from years ago. Waylon learns of his wife's past as the story unravels, adding to the wild ride of greed and survival, leaving the audience questioning who can really trust who.
