Mickey & Sage

Synopsis:
a workshop production of Sara Farrington's new play. Mickey & Sage is a disturbing play, disguised in a funny play. It explores childhood fear and how kids misinterpret the world. Mickey is an aggressive little 11-year. Sage is a hyper-active 9-year-old. Mickey & Sage have been thrust into a terrifying world, thanks to two very bad parents and one very strange neighbor, Harvey.
