An all new edition of our outdoor theatrical triptych launched in summer 2021. Three site-specific new works will be presented as a roving performance with audiences traveling by car to each secret location to experience these self-contained plays in environments that enhance their stories.

For this special theatrical event, AOH is commissioning two new works: one written by Mukta Phatak, featuring Abuzar Farrukh, seen as part of AOH’s Crystal Radio Sessions and award-winning INVASION! in 2022; and another by New York-based cabaret artist, writer, and actor Salty Brine. The event will also premier a work by playwright and poet Barbara Wiechmann,previously at AOH as the author of Snow Queen in 2019.

Please take note that to reach each performance location, audiences will be also walking a short distance across grass that is sometimes gently sloping. For whom this may be a concern, please write so that we can make accommodations.

At each play location, blankets and some seating will be provided. Audiences are also welcome to bring their own seating, if preferred, or to stand. All three plays are presented at each showing so only select one date / time combination. Audience capacity is limited.
