About the Show & Dates:

In the wake of their brother Joey's passing, estranged adult siblings Krysti, Michael and Brian uncover a box of dusty cassette tapes upon which Joey recorded countless treasured memories. A journey into their past inevitably rips open old wounds and begs the most difficult of all questions: forgive or forget? 

The show was selected as a featured production in Open Jar’s 2nd Annual Broadway Shark Tank in October 2023. 

The World’s Cassette Library will be presented at Open Jar Studios on Friday June 14th at 1 PM and 4:30 PM. Running time is 90 minutes.
