About the Show

When 6 middle schoolers are sent by their parents to a workshop on how to make (and keep) friends, they never expected to end up trapped, with no adult supervision, and no way out. As the lack of food, abundance of annoyance, and rising tension levels drive them to put each other on trial in an attempt to identify who locked them in, their fate rests in their own hands. Can they learn to work together and free themselves? Or will they slowly rot in the basement of this YMCA, trapped by their own selfish impulses. Come see who can get out… of the lock in.

The Lock In is an original show devised by the cast. Devising gives young artists the opportunity to work as creators, not just actors. By crafting a show which is true to themselves and their life experiences, we end up with both a process and a product which is representative of the full scope of the creativity, ingenuity, and possibilities which live within our ensemble.
