April (“Positive Thinking guru for the YouTube generation”) is here to help us take back control. Together, we can manifest something greater than ourselves.
“April is simply astounding. The wellness-positivity-black comedy is just the tip of an obsidian stiletto the size of an iceberg.“ (Kieron Gillen - ‘Phonogram’, ‘The Wicked + The Divine’)
Written and performed by Carrie Marx, APRIL is the new cult show from Hermetic Arts, the creators of BADD (Bothered About Dungeons & Dragons) and UNBURIED.
“Fight to get a ticket!“ (Nicholas Vince - ‘Hellraiser’, ‘Nightbreed’)
