Overview

A new work by 7th House Theater

Albert Grissom has a problem. Well, two problems. He hasn’t seen his father in three weeks and there's a monster living in his basement. With an original score, 7th House Theater’s The Passage follows two children on a real-life adventure stranger than anything they could have imagined.

About 7th House Theater

7th House Theater is dedicated to creating new, innovative, and re-imagined stage-productions with an emphasis on music as a theatrical element. Founded in 2013, 7th House seeks to get at the heart of the plays we produce by stripping them down to their bare essentials. Our aesthetic is minimal, and focuses our productions on the connection between actors, musicians, and audience.
