Cold Shoulder: An American Cryo Story

Directed by Duke Harbison

@ 8:00 | Mainstage


About the Show

On an indeterminate day in the 2020s, a man created a machine that allows humans to cool themselves to below freezing temperature in order to slow down the mitosis process of their cells, extending their lifespan. Some will use this in vain to attempt a faux-immortality, others will preserve the dying until proper medical procedures are available. All we know for sure is that this supposed life-extending process must have been flawed, as recent evidence of bones that underwent cryostasis are undeniable.
