(presented by Mercury Players and KnowBetter Productions)

A group of writers, directors, and actors gather on December 30th to pick names, themes, and writing challenges out of a hat. Then – in teams – they create magnificent theatrical mayhem over the next 24 hours, resulting in an awesome New Year’s Eve production that’s the best end-of-year extravaganza!!! The Blitz is like a box of chocolates…you never know what you’re gonna get :-) Proceeds – as always – will benefit the Bartell.

When a young woman struggling with anxiety decides to take LSD with her closest friends, she unwittingly embarks on the most fantastic journey of her life. This “acid trip” of a play focuses on the importance of a strong support system when faced with terrifying challenges. A one-act dramedy, where truly anything is possible.
