The Shrill Collective presents “The Jersey Devil Doesn’t Exist” by Jess Honovich
Four young women are faced with what it means to believe, when one of them goes missing in a game of tag in the woods. Certainty and sanity unravel as the women’s stories of what happened are challenged one by one in the shadow of a diabolical tall tale. An original new play that explores being othered, and the risk of believing women.
