The Houston Premiere of Ryan Scott Oliver and Hunter Foster's mind-blowing, multicultural myth-driven musical, JASPER IN DEADLAND, makes a splash-landing at artFACTORY, August 2 through 18! This rocking new musical follows seventeen-year-old Jasper, as he dives into a deep chasm of the earth in search of his missing best friend, Agnes. Plunging into the depths of the River Lethe, Jasper finds himself in Deadland, an afterlife-underworld that blends mythology, religion, and superstition from across the globe. He soon discovers that with every moment spent in Deadland, the residents forget their former lives. In his search for Agnes through the seven circles of Deadland, Jasper must conquer monstrous hurdles including the three-headed dog Cerberus, the Egyptian demon Ammut, Norse Gods Hel and Loki, and many more, all while fighting to hold on to his memories. Can Jasper escape the hereafter and return his friend to the living world, or will he join the dead forever?
