Two people are thrust into a mysterious cell together for reasons unknown. Are they the last humans left on Earth? Can they escape? Are they meant to become friends, more than friends, or perhaps enemies? And what’s the deal with the ominous doomsday clock which keeps appearing? Mark Wong and Nicole Burgio invite you to a room of dance, theater, merrymaking, and action. Welcome to Myzrie House.
