What the heck is Break In?
Break In is a quick paced crime comedy. A one woman show. A perk your ears up, open your eyes, and pay attention kinda show. We welcome you to dive inside the head of a loner on a mission and to Break In to her before she breaks in somewhere else.
Why is Break In so freakin' YOU-unique?
The only way this show works is with YOU. The audience! Imagine sitting in a dark theatre, a woman comes on stage and says nothing. Absolutely nothing...for the whole show. We hear a siren, see a flashing light, feel the dribble of hot coffee down her shirt or even the pain of stubbing her toe - you get the picture - we're gonna be very very quiet so you can hear the story. Make sense?
Follow her journey from the inside out.
All characters will be played by the same actor through voice over and pumped into the theatre for a unique twist on a silent comedy. What she's thinking you're hearing. She will voice all of the characters we hear. Whether it's a lovers quarrel upstairs in her building, a call from a friend, or the sound of the police hot on her tail, you'll meet all the characters like an audiobook on stage. Every seen one of those?
So, what's the point?
The goal is to utilize voice over, sound effects and live music on stage to create an atmosphere that heightens all of your senses in order to connect with the audience through an auditory explosion.
Cool, why should I support your show?
If the audience dives into her head and follows her through to the end of the story maybe, just maybe we can tap into how amazing it is that human beings can connect without saying a word.

Risks and challenges
Risks and Challenges:
With the myriad of film, theatre, and art projects looking for funding most of us are overwhelmed with emails and postings looking for support. However, in order to create a show like Break In from the ground up, the support of a community of friends, and friends of friends is critical to creating a new and unique artistic experience! The challenge is spreading the word, and the risk is not being heard (yes, that rhymes)!
Our total budget for the show is $2211 in order to pay a stipend for the time and talents of our writer and director as well as contingency costs for props/marketing/costumes/live musician. With Kickstarter, raising the minimum is the goal, but any support above and beyond our goal will be crucial and invested directly into making Break In a success!
