I know a guy whose cousin’s best friend’s uncle...

Isn’t that how the story goes? Somewhere on the American landscape between folk tales and truth lays the Urban Legend. Hook-handed killers, drug-crazed babysitters and Southern fried rats, all of these stories are as much a part of the American zeitgeist as Abraham Lincoln, baseball and The Doors. Rorschach promises you an evening of tiny terrors, the unsubstantiated and the just plain bizarre. And we swear every word is true!

Myth-Appropriation: URBAN LEGENDS is the fourth edition of Rorschach's extreme new play development project, Myth-Appropriation, where a group of writers, directors, designers and actors join forces to bring 6 fully realized new plays to life for one night only. Previous Myth-Appropriation projects focused on Grimms Fairytales, Creation Myths and the pagan origins of St Nicholas.
As in past editions, DC’s brightest and most promising theatre artists from on and off stage will lend their talents to creating these short plays that will explore the magic and myths that continue to influence American and World culture through storytelling.
