Based on the myth of Charon the ferryman on the River Styx and inspired by Dante’s Inferno and Sartre’s No Exit, an all female cast explores the fine line between life and death, decision and non-decision, and the intense human experience of connection. Pamela, a spoiled woman from the Upper East Side, steps onto her first New York Subway train and is confronted by a Nurse who quickly makes it clear that all is not as it seems. They are joined by the homeless, deteriorating Inez and a music obsessed, street-wise Tank. Through the course of an accelerating journey from the underworld of NYC to the Underworld of myth and legend, the true realization of what this journey entails dawns on them. Each must find a way to fulfill her destiny before the train reaches its destination.
