Get into some Black Wood! Orlando Fringe favorite Steve Schneider is back with a hilarious and poignant new comedy that haunts the dark shadows of dysfunction.

It’s 1967, and actress Caroline Logan has just joined the cast of America’s top supernatural-themed TV soap opera. But will nervous network censors and a vampire with line trouble derail her career before it’s even begun?

A cast of A-list Orlando talent will bring life to this side-splitting script by one of the Orlando Fringe’s leading playwrights. Help us complete the show's journey from its well-received workshop reading last August at Savoy to fully staged performances this May in the mighty Fringe Gold Venue. Get on board as a fully-fledged advertising sponsor, snag yourself some official show merch, or just make a kind donation to show you’re all about that Black Wood!
