Very Berry Dead: a staged reading
Big Storm Studio
Pittsburgh, PA
Share this event:

The tragic loss of multiple family members brings those remaining back to the farm to bury the dead in the ancestral cemetery. However, Vermont state burial laws turn out to be a bit more strict than imagined, and space is getting tight in the old family graveyard. Who gets in, and who gets ditched? Thats left up to the head of the family, the two feuding grown children, a rancher, a pagan, a visitor, and the town health officer who was not prepared for this kind of circus.

Big Storm Performance Company presents a staged reading of this new one-act comedy/drama written by José Pérez IV

Audience will be required to wear masks and show proof of vaccination at the door. Actors will not be masked. Big Storm Studio is a 1,400 sq ft space with limited air flow.

Seating is limited, we will do a Wait List for sold-out shows and release no-show tickets at 7pm to the Wait List.

Shows begin at 7pm, doors open at 6:40pm. NO LATE SEATING. There is only one entrance to the studio, a loud garage door. Please plan to arrive early to give time for parking and finding the space. A team member will be at the front entrance to guide audience to the studio and check vaccination proof. Show run time approx 90 minutes.

Big Storm Studio is located in a larger building called The XFactory at 6901 Lynn Way in North Point Breeze neighborhood. There is usually a fair amount of free parking both in the loading dock in front of the building, and a row of spots on Gordon St., along with the surrounding side streets. If parking in the loading dock, do not park in the spaces directly in front of the large garage door in the middle, and do not block in someone already parked. The main entrance is a set of glass double doors at the end of a well-lit loading dock that is decorated with a beautiful graffiti-style mural. No elevator, no ramps, 3 flights of stairs to reach the studio. A small set of stairs to get onto the dock, two flights of stairs to reach the second floor where the studio is.

Content warning - None of these are seen on stage, but are past events which are referenced: Death, suicide, homophobia, mental health struggles, child abuse.

Tickets are free, but Donations are always welcome to help support the artists and future productions.
