Reviews from Past Producers

Pandemic Pancake asks the question: What now? Characters decide, for good and for ill, how they will respond to this evolving new world. Do they find hope? Do they shut down? Do they open doors? Do they strategize long-term? Or do they take it day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute?

We are no different than the characters in this play. We all must decide “what now?”

This play can be performed virtually, socially distanced or a hybrid of the two.
