The Mall is the story of five former high school friends who are reunited at their abandoned hometown shopping mall at the summoning of mysterious, anonymous letters. Nearly a decade after graduation, their failed and failing relationships are brought to the forefront, but the answers they seek are not always as satisfying as they might have hoped. Despite the mysterious circumstances of their reunion, these five friends once again find the comforting shelter of the walls that used to create and sustain their teenage freedom while recognizing that only memories can last forever. The Mall challenges its audience to accept that change is inevitable, and that trying to live in the past only leads to getting left behind.
As a part of Now & Then's #newworkshop, audiences can expect a concert reading, staged reading (movement with scripts in hand), or a combination of both as the play is still being developed throughout the workshop week.
Now & Then Creative Company performs in the theatre at Metropolitan Arts Institute, 1700 N. 7th. Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85007. Parking is available on the lower level of the building. For the entrance to the theatre, travel up the stairwell to the first floor in the middle of the parking lot (this stairwell has a Scorpius Dance banner on it) and follow the signage to the theatre. Elevator access is available in the parking lot, toward the north entrance.
