The Kissimmee family lives in an unpredictable house of numbers – feral triplets, their fluttering mother Moth, and a father whose absence haunts the household. They are shut-ins: there’s nothing to eat, no way to leave, and dangerous objects fall unpredictably from the sky. One day, makeup kits from the heavens crash down around them, prompting the triplets to perform an impromptu theatrical, asking: what really happened to dad? The monstrous Kissimmees learn just how monstrous they really are.

New Paradise Laboratories creates a weirdly ravishing world, a comic reality where nothing can be predicted, where meteors make beautiful music, and blades falling from the sky can save your life.

“Sporting and erotic… civilized and primal.” — The New York Times

«Dazzling! Nothing less than a theatrical meditation on the mysterious and dangerous universe human beings inhabit.» — The Philadelphia Inquirer

New Paradise Laboratories (Philadelphia) is an experimental performance ensemble that explores radical means of expression to bend and reshape conventional ideas of theatre. NPL likes performance to be a visionary experience. It uses a variety of creative strategies to realize this desire, including company-devising techniques, cross-media design elements, and site-specific installation. NPL pieces value accidental inspiration, sudden paradigm shifts, and shocks to the system.

This production is a part of 2018 Capital Fringe Festival curated series. Support provided by Reveda Foundation, Share Fund, Office of Cable Television, Film, Music and Entertainment, Mayor Muriel Bowser Presents: 202 Creates and DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities
