secreting is a series of duologues documenting the intimate conversations that take place between a group of teenagers in the peripheries of a house party as they flail through to the early hours. Trying so hard to surpass the bubble boundaries of selfhood and connect with others, these characters shoot and miss miserably, creating cringe-worthy, heart-warming, and chilling drama out of the—seemingly—most basic human interactions.
A tragicomedy, the play vacillates between naturalism—largely in dialogue—and grotesque physicality. Nostalgia meets abjection.
As our characters try so hard to have fun and impress, mundanity spills imperceptibly into danger.
