A darkly comic riff on Edgar Allan Poe's The Masque of the Red Death, Obie Award-winning playwright Lisa D'Amour's Red Death follows a kindergarten teacher on an existential cross-country quest. Tasked by a mysterious extra-legal organization called The Panel with finding the "origin of evil, the root of denial and the basic human weakness that causes us to fear death," schoolteacher/lifeguard Jane Whithers sets out on the heels of Prospero Albright, a childhood friend who she thinks holds the answer.
