A mysterious death. An enigmatic detective. And some damn fine huckleberry pie. Inspired by the work of filmmaker David Lynch, Red Lodge, Montana will immerse you in a nightmare world of danger, desire, and doppelgängers. (Pie not included.)
$20 / 80 minutes
Red Lodge, Montana follows a troupe of actors as they attempt to produce their own send-up of David Lynch’s landmark television series Twin Peaks. What they end up creating is a live-action nightmare. Audience members will follow characters through the performance space as if they are walking through one of Lynch’s films.

The Antidote is an ever-changing collective of artists led by Philadelphia-based director and theater artist Michael Osinski. The Antidote believes live performance succeeds most when it entertains audiences and gives them a puzzle to solve. We blend contemporary pop culture with classic plots to craft a new way of telling stories. One that blends timeless tales and viral videos. One that appeals to the fast-paced multi-tasking world we live in.
The Antidote’s first production in 2015—The Hamlet Project—reimagined the Shakespearean classic through the lens of daytime television talk shows, music videos, online blogs, and pharmaceutical commercials. Great Again (2017) paid homage to Ibsen’s housewife heroine Nora Helmer, blending 1950’s sitcoms, dance crazes, and pulp fiction, all within the comfort and confines of a South Philly row home. Most recently The Antidote debuted its take on the self-help seminar with The Celebrity Guide to Mental Health and Wellness at the 2019 Philadelphia SoLow Fest.
