Native American Paranormal Society (NAPS): Play by William S. YellowRobe

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Native American Paranormal Society (NAPS) is a view into the present paranormal craze.  Ghosts and Spirits have existed in Euro-American literature since Greek comedies to Shakespeare.  Spirituality is a strong theme in some Native American literature as well.  YellowRobe takes a look as to when those who are at rest and who are at peace are disturbed by the arrogance of the living.  Set in an abandoned Bingo Hall/Casino, the current residents are those who have lost their lives within the Bingo Hall/ Casino.  This is a long one-act play.

There will be no intermission.
