THE NEVERBORN by Kelleen Conway Blanchard Opens August 2 at Annex Theatre

The Neverborn is a new, creepy comedy written by Kelleen Conway Blanchard and directed by Catherine Blake Smith, premiering at Annex Theatre on August 2 and running until August 31.

Talented Annex friends and family portray an ensemble of bizarre group of characters in a 1930s Dustbowl era world only somewhat like our own. Two orphaned sisters, Lotte and Bettina Black, murder the Matron at the Starling Home for Feeble Minded children and set out to find their-probably not dead-mother. Soon they are pursued by a tormented detective, a gifted Reverend's son, and a vengeful haunted baby painting. Annex's Gothic Sweetheart returns to the Annex Theatre stage with a magically creepy tale.
