At the edges of a remote penal colony, a cut-purse, a priest, and an indigenous refugee flee their captors in an uneasy truce. Through a trail of blood, dust and fire they’ll find that hunger powers the strangest of dreams. A post-punk prison fantasy.

Lord Willing & the Creek Don’t Rise
by Morgan Rose
Directed by Kat Henry

A broken kitchen-sink drama of carnivals and carnivores. In a booze-soaked city, families and homes lie devastated by a hellcat storm. But one couple has stuck it out and now Earl, unemployed and blues-sick, wants to do something romantic. He might just have her for dinner. An almost true story of human cannibalism.

MKA brings Lord Willing & The Creek Don’t Rise to the stage after its 2014 NEON UP LATE reading.
