Unpacking: A Ghost Story Told in the Dark

A happy couple has just moved into their new home. But the novelty of homeownership quickly fades as they face a sea of boxes, a major blackout, and, shortly thereafter, the ghosts of all their past relationships.
The newest play from comedians Marina & Nicco combine two of your biggest fears: the dark and commitment.  The audience lends a hand by lighting the stage for a couple that is literally, and figuratively, feeling their way through the dark. Flashlights will be provided.
