One Last Thing Before You Go

view project

HOLLYWOOD—For the second year in a row, director/producer Aaron Vanek brings a unique, experimental, immersive and interactive show to the Hollywood Fringe Festival with “One Last Thing Before You Go”.

One audience member will explore the border between life, death, and afterlife in this enveloping, improvisational show that is dependent on the actions—or inactions—of each lone audience member.

Unlike other immersive shows, the actors cannot touch the audience, but the one audience member can touch the actors from fingertips to elbow, if they so choose. The actors and the narrative takes their cues from what the audience member does or does not do.

“One Last Thing Before You Go” is the second theatrical production from Some Company. The first, “Fallen Stars at the Charity Sale” was a staged adapation of a Norwegian larp that debuted at HFF ’17. It was hailed as “…one of the most innovative premises at this year’s Fringe” by My Haunt Life, “a charming idea which highlights themes of materialism without being dogmatic,” from Stage Raw, and from audience member Ray Fox, “For what could easily be a frivolous improvisational exercise taking a cue from Toy Story became something profound about materialism, the impermanence of life, and, ultimately, death. I walked away wanting to see more and sincerely hope I get a chance to.”

DUE TO THE LIMITED NUMBER OF SEATS AVAILABLE (25), NO COMPS OR DISCOUNTS ARE AVAILABLE. However, reviewers interested in seeing a tech rehearsal for free are invited.
