Paul Strickland and Erika Kate MacDonald's "13 Dead Dreams of Eugene"
X-Files meets the Twilight Zone... in the dark! A dark and thrilling shadow play with music, 13 Dead Dreams of "Eugene" is based on the true story of a dead body that was on display for 35 years in a small Ohio town. The body was never identified and, for reasons that sound too strange to be true, residents began to refer to the body as Eugene.
This 60-minute live performance brings to life the recurring nightmares, commonly referred to as Dead Dreams, which were shared by the towns residents throughout the period Eugene remained unburied.
Described by the Orlando Weekly as "a surreal, scary treat," 13 Dead Dreams of "Eugene" won Best Show at the 2018 Orlando Fringe Festival and was named to the Cincinnati Enquirer's top shows of 2017. The show is performed entirely in the dark, using only flashlights and shadow puppetry a mix of full-body shadow puppetry and original shadow cut-outs in front of and behind an eight-foot-tall shadow screen.
Matt Palm of the Orlando Sentinel said, "Heres hoping my dreams tonight are as entertaining as this show. Did I mention Ill be sleeping with the lights on?"
This show is intended for ages 13+ and parental guidance is advised.
