What is it that makes a good life? And a good death? The Great American Casket Company would like you to believe that they have the answers – but do they? Does anyone? Explore for yourself on this roving, immersive theater experience that uses Green-Wood’s historic landscape as a central, and essential, character. As the sun sets on 478 acres, you’ll be led down a performance rabbit hole, written exclusively for Green-Wood by BREAD Arts Collective. You’ll become a part of the show, too, as you respond and interact to what’s happening around you. By the end of your journey, you may have come to some conclusions about life’s big mysteries. Or perhaps, as is so often the case, your experience may simply raise more questions. Either way, your time with the Great American Casket Company is sure to leave a lasting impression.
After the show, discuss your experiences with fellow explorers, cast, and crew at an outdoor reception designed by Modern Rebel, Brooklyn-based alternative event planners.
