Black Hollow


It was just another morning in Black Hollow—until it wasn’t. A school shooting by one of their own upends the lives of an idyllic American town, trapping them in a world of memory between a tragic past, a painful present, and an uncertain future. Haunted by the spirit of the perpetrator, the people of Black Hollow piece together the events leading up to the event, reckon with their loss, and fight to live on. A play about grief, community, and resilience.
