INKubator New Play Festival: Daxton on the Night Shift at 7/11
7:30pm at Grassroots Community Space
It's midnight at the last 7/11 open 24 hours in The United States of America and impending doom of the discontinuation of the much-cherished red slurpee has sent the world as we know it into a global crisis. The 7/11 Corporation has put all of its slurpee machines on lockdown, bracing itself as a new organization known as the Red Slurpee Brigade threatens all of humanity in the pursuit of their beloved red slurpee. As for the last 7/11 still operating at 24 hours in America? Well... new hire and criminally inept cashier Daxton's on the night shift and retired Manic Pixie Dream Girl, now part-time Letterboxd critic Baby in a Corner is looking for her slurpee fix. A play about how Scott Pilgrim enabled an entire generation of men to be undateable.
