Their love for theatre and a hive-mind-like ensemble combine to produce some of the most unique improvised plays you’ll ever see. PGraph was the recipient of a B.

PGraph Presents Box & String

“The [performance] was completely mesmerizing.” “A brilliant show.”

“Box & String” is resident company PGraph’s new joint collaboration with Physical Plant Theater’s Artistic Director and playwright Steve Moore. The unique show premiered at the 2015 Improvised Play Festival to rave reviews and will continue limited time runs of the show throughout the year. The next four performances are: May 29th, June 5th, (skip two weeks), June 26th, and July 3rd.

A fragile string creates a bold dividing line in a world where nothing is quite what it seems. Shifting from playful and mischievous to bittersweet to enchanted, “Box & String” moves beyond gimmick into something otherworldly while bringing the audience along for the adventure.
Inspired by the works of Haruki Murakami, Gabriel García Márquez, and visual artist Fred Sandback, “Box & String” is a new experimentation exploring the boundaries we both create and discover in the worlds around us.

Total Show Runtime: 1.5 – 2 Hours (usually 10:00pm-11:40)
