One Last Thing Before You Go
Add to Favorites
A unique solitary experience on the border between life and afterlife.
This show is improvisational, immersive, and interactive. There are different endings depending on your actions or inaction. This show contains a plot twist, hence the scant details. It is for one person only. It may be eerie and disturbing, but is not designed to be scary like a haunt—nothing will jump out at you.

Why are tickets so expensive?
This is a prodigious conundrum. Only 25 people will be able to see this show, assuming each show is booked. Again, it’s only for one person at a time. Even if we sell out all 25 tickets, we are still bound to lose at least $400 if not more. That number jumps to over $500 at least at $25 or cheaper tickets. Our hope, however, is that (25 of) you are willing to take a chance with your wallet on an extremely rare, haunting, intimate and, we hope, powerful experience.
What is the plot of this? What is it about?
We think it will be a better experience for you if you know as little as possible about the story ahead of time. However, if knowing what might happen and what this is about is critical to your purchase of a ticket, cut and paste this URL to start the spoiler process: http://aaronvanek.com/spoilers-for-one-last-thing-before-you-go/
As a proud HFF Hotspot, we can’t wait for you to drop in for a bite or drink!
Adapted from Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s famous 1892 feminist short story of the same name, it chronicles a young woman’s descent into madness. A blend of live-action and animation.
