Auditions for HOME at the Twin Cities Horror Festival

Auditions for HOME by Garrett Vollmer at the Twin Cities Horror Festival

Based on real stories from the playwright's childhood, "HOME" explores the dark underbelly of the inherent apathy in many of America's small towns. Angela and her family have recently moved to the small city where her new husband grew up. As they are getting their bearings they receive a visit from their neighbor, Tony. Tony's obsession with their family grows, just as the town's own perverse status quo climbs to match. "HOME" explores what happens when a bone-deep boredom mingles with a violently fragile mind, and how you never really know the people just outside your front door.
