FULL-LENGTH DRAMEDY. When three college freshmen (a scrappy feminist, a naïve evangelical, and a cocky logistician) meet in Hell—which appears as a dorm room—they are forced to play a game with eternal stakes, which draws out each one's fatal flaws in their interactions with each other and a fun-loving demon. The winner will go to Heaven at the cost of the other two’s eternal torture.

The newcomers confront their looming graduation and adulthood as they discover seedy mysteries lurking in Neverland's past and present. This play explores themes of mental health, revenge, and prolonged adolescence with an ensemble cast.
