In Case of Emergency

About the Production

The garage door of a private home becomes a curtain, rising on Meredith, a single woman who has filled her garage with supplies for any emergency. It's gotten a little out of hand, which is why she's hired Alex from "Ready, Set, Go" to help her get organized. But neither the supplies nor the prepping expert can prepare her for the personal disasters that her younger sister brings home, on a day when the city seems set to go up in flames. A brand new site-specific theatrical experience, written by Chalk Repertory founding member Ruth McKee, in the LA-based company's signature style.

Founded by five graduate of the MFA Theatre Program University of California, San Diego, Chalk Rep kicked off in 2009 with a critically-acclaimed season of four plays including the Ovation Award-winning Family Planning. Working with a diverse group of artists, Chalk Rep aims to transform the ideas that non-theatregoers have about what theatre can be, to create work that is intimate, relevant, and accessible to all.
