Project Synopsis
Persephone’s Cave is an original two-hander play that tells the story of two outcasts named Persephone and Hayden who have chosen to escape the world by locking themselves away from the rest of society, for the rest of their lives, in the projector room of an old cinematheque. *Local premiere in Vancouver (First premiered at the 2019 Frigid Festival in New York in Feb 2019)*
Additional Comments: 

Play is a 90 minutes long two-hander.
