Heathens is exploration of Hell (very) loosely based on Dante's Divine Comedy. George follows his one night stand, a man calling himself Jim, through the chaotic underworld. Encountering a variety of strange creatures, from blasphemers to Blackbeard, from Tantalus to Andrew Lloyd Webber, the socially awkward George tries to forge connections with the lost, beat-boxing souls of the Dead. Written by Tank curator Sam Kaseta, this choral play asks questions about morality, mortality, and how to start conversations at a party where you don't know anyone.
