THE POOL is a pop-up theater company led by playwrights Kate Cortesi, Brenda Withers, Emily Zemba, and producer victor cervantes jr. Our artist-led production model puts playwrights at the helm of our processes, and in support of one another, as we bring three bold new plays to life at the beloved New Ohio Theatre. We're proud to play our part in the return of live theater. Thank you for joining us!

A stranger finds a penny on the ground, unleashing an absurd day of unsettling interactions, puzzling connections, and plain bad luck. An ensemble cast of eight navigates personal and national terrors in this unconventional dark comedy about what happens when we believe in the unknown. (Nov. 1 at 8pm; Nov. 5 at 5pm; Nov 7 at 2pm; Nov. 11 at 8pm; Nov. 13 at 2pm; Nov. 14 at 8pm; Nov. 17 at 8pm; Nov. 19 at 5pm; Nov. 20 at 8pm)
