“An absorbing (production) in this inventive, found-space staging — marks Exit 63 as a young company to watch” — Kris Vire, Storefront Rebellion

“DARK MATTERS is a slow, spooky, and chilling ride, and this production’s strongest aspects stem from the way it smartly uses its unusual venue to create an atmosphere that furthers its story. This is a show where you’re never quite sure what reality you occupy, and where every character’s worldview is shattered and brought into chilling relief – literally and figuratively.” - Aaron Lockman, Performink

When Bridget Cleary goes missing, in the dead of the night, her husband Michael and son, Jeremy, scramble to help Sheriff Richard Egan find her.
