Open: 11/09/18- Close: 12/08/18 CONSUMPTION
A mysterious German doctor; a dying woman; stoned teenagers; a showbiz marriage on the rocks; an itinerant fortune teller; a lost episode of TV’s Dragnet. Loosely based on the true-ish story of Elena Hoyos and Count Carl Von Cosel, five disparate but intertwining couples fly through time, space, and planes of existence to ponder the nature of love.

Consumption is a site specific, experiential and immersive work that will play for an audience of just thirty people per performance. The play takes place in a beautifully restored 100-year old Victorian home where the first floor, including two parlor spaces and a ballroom will be utilized.

Produced by Mason Holdings

Performed by Devin Burnam & Tracy Weller with scenic design by Christopher Swader and Justin Swader.
