OPEN AUDITIONS: To Listen Past the Quiet

Studio Theater production, Curtain Up! New Plays Series.

By Marissa Alaniz      

Directed by Jason Kypros

When two sisters start a house renovation, they begin to uncover its secrets, and the mysterious history of the Sally sisters from the 1860s. As their stories converge in a visit from the afterlife, it becomes clear that the real horror is breaking the tight bonds of sisterhood. In this love letter to the paranormal that touches on the topics of feminism, mental health, and society as a whole, the past and present are closer than they seem.
