In the throws of our constant fears of the covid-19 pandemic, we have here a cohort of young adults who are about to leave childhood well and truly behind and graduate from university. Childhood might be left behind, but not necessarily their childhood fears. If anything, they have been added to and exacerbated by the now far from novel coronavirus. Our process and production entail these fears being confronted and played-with, with the cast confined to the limbo of the dream-like world of The Red Room, wherein they are bound in repeated child-like games of hide and seek to work through their fears.

Ready or not, here we come.
