The Irresistible is a completely immersive theatrical experience, adapted and directed by Caleb Hammond. Ibsen’s “Hedda Gabler” and Euripides’ “The Bacchae” come together in an interwoven, layered, and expansive drama of the human condition. The show’s malleable perspectives are brought to life through translucent live camera feeds, keeping the scene to scene focus fluid and dynamic.

Audience members are free to explore the entire playing space and have a drink at the bar while taking in the performance and live atmospheric music by the all-female punk band HUFF THIS!  For those who REALLY can’t resist, the show may be viewed in a loop from 7pm until closing.
