Well, the day has come.
Pretty much two years to the day since we first envisioned Jonathan arriving in Munchen, Steve peering at us through the blinds, and Meredith out back skinning a dead possum, we’ll be recording the first of eleven episodes in front of a live studio audience. You’re invited! If being part of the next big thing in storytelling isn’t enough for you, there will be FREE BEER.
WHAT: Join us for a live recording of the pilot episode of the podcast “Munchen, Minnesota.” Like a lot of older industrial cities in the Midwest, Munchen has fallen on hard times. As people and businesses have moved away, many of the town’s neighborhoods have emptied, leaving old houses vacant and crumbling. Crime is rampant. The public schools are in disarray. But Munchen’s got an even more serious problem: it’s on the verge of a supernatural infestation. The threat seems to loom ever larger as the town declines. And the only people with the power to save it are a geeky teenage girl, her gay librarian father, and an ambitious city planner who didn’t have a clue what he was in for when he transferred from the East Coast.

This recording is presented as part of the monthly Dark Room series at Cleveland Public Theatre. The Dark Room is a place where writers take center stage and their work has a chance to grow. The Dark Room is an ongoing event held on the second Tuesday of each month. The Dark Room affords emerging and veteran playwrights the space and resources to develop new works. It offers a venue to workshop plays, novels, poems, or any other written work in a supportive, yet critical environment. After the recording, at 8:30 pm, there will be an open mic session for writers and actors.
