Special encore presentation Saturday 8/7c. Watch the special online now.
It is opening night at an immersion play called "Nine Circles" based on Dante's Inferno. Theatergoers do not sit in seats; they participate by walking from set to set wearing ritual animal masks such as a goat, monkey or a hawk. Backstage, director Ted Scott brings flowers to the dressing room of his gorgeous new star, Megan. Ted attempts to kiss Megan on the lips, but she deflects his advances. Later, Megan is acting in a scene when a goat-masked figure advances and grabs her from behind while someone in a hawk mask holds her arms. The actress begins to painfully cry for help as the masked goat forcibly rapes her. The audience stands and watches, thinking it's all part of the play.
