There is a common desire, deriving from the core of our identities to find meaning and connection within the world around us. We create lives with histories and futures but how much of the story can we really control? What influences us to make decisions and what happens when we diverge from paths we’ve paved?

Set in the Crossroads Psychiatric Retreat Center, The Flu Season by Will Eno is a compelling and humorous display of humanity in all its chaotic glory. Following the lives of two patients, a nurse and a doctor, The Flu Season challenges what it means to be alive. To trudge through and experience all the small laughs, pains, dullness, and excitement that compose an extraordinary story.
