What Happened When

Preview: July 25th, Performances- July 26th- August 23rd

“TIGHT AND POWERFUL… the theatrical equivalent of a triple espresso shot… for those willing to take the ride, it’s a moving, indelible experience…. RECOMMENDED… STAGE RAW TOP TEN” — Terry Morgan, Stage Raw

“RIVETINGkeeps you on the edge of your seat. It unspools like a ghost story on a dark and stormy night but not like any ghost story you’ve ever seen before… If this initial production is any indication of what to expect, make plans to see all three. It’s that good.” — Ellen Dostal, BroadwayWorld

“CHILLING… Make a date to go see this at least once, if not with all three casts.” — Rachel Flanagan, Discover Hollywood

Brooding, compelling, funny and startling. Memories unravel and dark truths are revealed in a haunting ghost story by Rattlestick Playwrights Theater’s Daniel Talbott (Slipping). Chris Fields directs the West Coast premiere of What Happened When for The Echo Theater Company, opening at Atwater Village Theatre.

On a snowy night in a rural farmhouse, three siblings huddle together in the dark with a flashlight, while the audience (unseen by them) gathers closely around.

“Expect to be fully immersed in Daniel’s beautiful, provocative and disturbing memory play,” says Fields.
