OCTOBER

Read October on NPX here.

 

Two acts. 8-11 performers. 4w, 3m, 1 flexible.

It’s not even October yet. A new kid in town looks just like that tool that just passed away - and that’s only one in an unsettling line of coincidences. A small world filled with runaway dogs, rare birds, and lukewarm beers intricately turns. As the annual Harvest Moon Festival looms in a beautiful Vermont suburb, every high school senior is looking for a date. But it’s not really that kind of thing, right?
