About Killing Time


"the sickest show in town... capped by a resolution that is spiritual and hopeful."
-- Backstage


Killing Time is a dark comedy
about life, death, and the afterlife.

A prostitute and a botanist are stuck
in a room that they can't escape.

An aging cop and a Trekkie form an
unlikely bond in the back of a bus.
Bodies are piling up on Conner beach on Long Island,
and there's a serial killer on the loose.

This is the story of how these threads converge
to challenge the audience's beliefs and perceptions,
in a way that engages them directly in the big questions about life and death.
