About the Show

Rhapsody Collective celebrates Cycle 4 with The Phobia Plays.

About the Artists

Rhapsody Collective is group of young artists dedicated to creating new work from the ground up. Comprised of actors, directors, and playwrights, the artists are broken up into teams to develop a new play in the course of a cycle. Using the idea of “freedom within restrictions”, each team must create a play using the specific theme for the cycle. For more on Rhapsody Collective, please visit or
