Being a freshman in college is hard when your roommate is weird, home is far away, and Hookman is everywhere! What’s Lexi to do when her old high school friend, Jess, gets killed…I mean – has an accident, a car accident, I think? Not even Facebook stalking the dead can calm the creepy feelings spilling out of the shadows in this existential comic horror slasher – a new play by Lauren Yee.
“ Yee is a talented young writer [whose] voice is absolutely worth a listen!” – nytheatre.com
Lauren Yee’s Hookman is a project of the XX PlayLab, and a collaboration between Company One and the Boston Center for the Arts.
XX PlayLab is a program developed by the Boston Center for the Arts that fulfills an urgent need in the theatre community by supporting female playwrights in the development and production of new scripts. The BCA and Company One will provide a dramaturgical advisor and workshop one new play over the course of a season, from initial reading to a full production.
