Using a mix of hyper-realism, audience interaction, and immersive theatre, Complacency places its viewers inside the world of today’s college students. As the five young characters struggle with depression, suicide, grief, and emotional abuse between friends, their isolation is not, perhaps, as clear-cut as it seems. The characters are never truly alone and they turn for help to the only people left: the audience.

Approximately two hour run-time.

Premiered Hampshire College, 2015

Edith Fulton is sent by her aging aunt to live with Lord Richard Durham at his country estate in hopes of a profitable marriage. However, she finds the empty corridors haunted by mysterious music, whispering servants, and a tyrannical master. After nine years abroad with only the perhaps too intimate company of his servant, Daniel, Richard proves to be as shrouded in mystery as the house itself. And perhaps as violent.

Approximately two hour run-time.
