Infernal is a rock musical based on Dante’s Inferno that explores consequences, remorse, and our own inescapable demons. Drawing from Dante’s text, the Bible, Catholic Tradition, and Jewish Mysticism, in this coming of age story, heaven and hell are made human.
This story, at its heart, is about how we treat each other. Actions have consequences and by following Lily down through Dante’s Nine Circles of Hell we confront our own fears and regrets. Lily represents all of us, she is messy, she is human, and oftentimes she is wrong. So what happens when you realize the errors of your ways, but it’s too late to change your fate? Can we learn to forgive ourselves?

With Covid, it's harder than ever to be a theatre creator. Just with this initial presentation, we've hit a lot of setbacks and had to rethink the way we present art. Unfortunately, this also means a lot of unforeseen costs and a more difficult outreach journey. Your support, no matter what size, makes the difference in us making it another day.
