Nothing much seems to happen in the isolated town of Echo, Nevada...that is until a new kid shows up and disturbs the secret hideout of a group of not-so-friendly misfits. LuLu, Bizzy, and twins Catch and Field spend an afternoon discovering things they never knew about friendship, trust, and a mysterious and disgusting "Death Jar." A play about making friends, navigating change, and exploring imaginative worlds that are often lurking under the stairs.
