NOW IN ITS TENTH SEASON! Each week, three continuing stories face off against two new tales. At the end of the show, you vote for the three stories that you would like to see continue on to next Saturday night, where their subsequent episodes will then be pitted against two completely new storylines. Each week's serials could live on for weeks... or be quietly smothered in their sleep Ė itís up to you. But whichever pieces you vote for, one thing is for certain - by the end of the evening, you will be a Serial killer.

WORLD PREMIERE - From the Creators of Serial Killers! THE BOX is an experiment in randomly generated narrative. Given a collection of characters and settings from which to choose, writers will create fragments- small scenes and snippets that will then be put together randomly and performed each night. The hope is that a story will emerge - one that is dark, mysterious, and moving.
There are a million different stories in THE BOX. In the end, we will hear just one.
