"It's my death and I can fucking joke about it if I want." In the wake of his best friend Zane's suicide, Tarik is asked by Suze, Zane's sister, to help clear out his apartment. With the spirit of the recently deceased still lingering, Tarik is forced to examine his relationship with his late friend. Join us for this Lab production that explores the levity in the bleak, the hidden despair in laughter, and the art of human connection.

THE SACRED LAB: The Sacred Lab is Sacred Fools' development program and works in two ways: as a Project workshop or as a Director workshop. Artistically, it provides company member playwrights, directors and actors the resources to learn, experiment and gain experience. The workshop also allows the artists to kick the proverbial tires on a specific play in development by producing an elaborate staged reading with some fully staged scenes, thereby examining both the theatricality and design elements as well as future production potential.
