Snake in Fridge, which will run at The 14th Street Y April 14-May 8, is about "the sordid lives of a group of young misfits living in a creepy Victorian house. Their combined income barely covers club-going and drugs, so overdue rent is mounting. Daydreams of fame and fortune are constantly interrupted by the insidious lure of the porn industry. When one of the housemates accepts a snake to cover a debt, the snake disappears and bizarre things begin to happen. Eventually, they begin to wonder if it is the snake or the spirit of the house that is haunting them. Things come to a head when the group—an internet porn performer, a busboy who longs to be a waiter, a nude dancer, her mentally-challenged sister and a male stripper—discover that one of their own may be a murderer." The show is presented by The Themantics Group, a new company of theater professionals dedicated to "producing a season of projects around a particular theme." It was founded in 2002 by producing director Jay Aubrey and artistic director Blake Lawrence. The theme for their 2004-2005 season is "Money! or Morals?" It began in October 2004 with a developmental production of Hazard County by Allison Moore. For more information visit www.themantics.org.
