World Premiere October 2018

Written by Deya Danielle Drake, directed by Lynnsey Ooten

In the aftermath of a violent incident onboard a commercial jet, an Airline CEO and Flight Attendant fight to control the narrative of a news cycle in free fall.  When the incident crosses over from news ticker headline to twitter #trending, the two women discover how fraught with turbulence the internet can be. ESCAPE paints a timely picture of the temptation to pursue power, by any means necessary, and the human need to solidify our own relevance in a world that is changing quicker than we are. 

Part of The New York International Fringe Festival – FringeNYC A production of The Present Theatre Company
