September 13–15 + 20*–22, 2019
Born into a lineage of hate, a band of modern-day explorers exhumes an unseen but cancerous tale. As they awaken alternative stories, some must atone for their sins and those they’ve inherited, while others must avenge wrongs still ongoing. If they don’t, they may write the next chapter in this horrific penny dreadful.
*ASL interpretation for Friday, September 20 performance at 8:30pm.
accessible seating available at all performances

the after-image creates theatrical events for the passionately postmodern audience. we are a theater company contending with the stories and forms that have preserved the status quo. we conjure text, movement, video, and sound into productions that engage an active audience in the collective questions of our past, present, and future.
Co-producing artistic directors Kate St. John and Amy Shoshana Blumberg founded the after-image in 2019 after creating he called it cymbeline, an immersive rendering of Shakespeare’s Cymbeline. They earned their MFAs in scenic design and theater directing, respectively, and draw on their backgrounds in the Classics and modern dance to develop their work.
