About the Show

Go To Sleep was developed and produced by Obvious Agency; Arianna Gass, Daniel Park, and Joseph Ahmed and premiered at the Art Church of Philadelphia June 22-25th, 2017.

“The hardest part about realizing that I’m not going to be able to sleep is deciding if I have the will to get out of bed and do anything about it.” 

Go To Sleep asks players to take an active role in crafting their theatrical experience. Each player has 12 minutes to interact with the room, discovering objects that trigger story, video, or music events. All of these events are pre-scripted and performed and mixed live.
