In this urban thriller, a fifteen-year-old runaway named Nihar is living on the streets, hustling to survive. When he meets a well-intentioned (and well-off) graduate student named Jessica, he tells her an unbelievable story: there is a fantastical world hiding just beneath our reality, ruled by the King of Shadows. Nihar claims the terrifying, demon-like creature is hunting San Francisco's homeless population, trying to find him. Can Jessica protect Nihar? Will she? And could the boy somehowpossiblybe telling the truth?  The answers have frightening repercussions for both Jessica and Nihar as the story spirals darker and it drags Jessica's loved ones, Eric and Sarah, into the shadows.

"Both trick and treat, the play's tightly plotted twists and naturalistic dialogue stay so consistently engrossing it doesn't occur to you until the end of the evening that the little four-hander is actually a remarkably ambitious fantasy... KING OF SHADOWS is a gift to the audience." -Variety

Starring: Jennifer Marco (Jessica), Nicholis Sheley (Nihar), Allison Towbes (Sarah), Josh Jenkins (Eric). Mia Chavez (Sarah u/s). With Direction by Kate Bergstrom, Assistant Direction and Costume Design by Terry Li, Set Design by Peter BarnHoldt, Lighting Design by Conner Warren, Sound Design by Matt Tavianini, and Stage Management by Katelyn Tustin.
