Join Dante and Virgil as they go on a tour of hell – decided by the audience! Part improv and part scripted, Build Your Own Inferno puts the comedy back into the Divine Comedy, combining social commentary and ridiculousness in a way that would make Dante himself proud. This show is one hell of a comedy and missing it would be a sin!

Peter, George, and Dawn are trapped in a bunker waiting out the zombie apocalypse. They don’t have any contact with the outside world so they don’t know if the apocalypse is over or not. All they know is they are getting really tired of each other.  And Call of Duty.
