A true story of love, fear and Ayahuasca. In June 2012, grappling with heart break and depression, Michael quits his job in the midst of a historically awful recession and finds himself in Peru drinking a noxious tea as a shaman looks on with a smile. How far is Michael willing to go to find transformation? And will he be able to find his way back?

Michael Kass is an award winning actor, writer and storyteller whose work has appeared in the Chicago Sun Times, the uber-hipster Thought Catalog (he’s still not sure how that happened) and The Moth Grandslam. ‘Ceremony’ is his first solo show.
