At the age of 15, Phelim McDermott says, he found himself at the center of paranormal activity, as his home was haunted by a poltergeist. McDermott now revisits those memories with his award-winning, 70 Hill Lane now playing at New York's PS 122 through Jan. 18. In 70 Hill Lane, mysteries abound as solid objects pass through walls and a house reveals its untold story. McDermott tells his story, synthesizing object animation, live music, and a little old-fashioned storytelling.
McDermott's Improbable Theater is one of Great Britain's most adventurous companies, making it's New York debut with 70 Hill Lane.
