Wide Eyed Productions and Mastodon Theatre Company will present the world premiere of KEEP by Francesca Pazniokas. Directed by Stephanie C. Cunningham, previews begin April 7 at TBG Theatre. Opening night is slated for Friday, April 14.

KEEP tells the story of a young hoarder who is trapped in her home by her own belongings, unable to throw anything away. When her sisters surprise her with an intervention, she is forced to start cleaning. What seems like a straightforward plan proves far more difficult than any of the sisters imagined. As they sift through the debris, old resentments and secrets -- including the fate of their missing sister who disappeared years earlier -- come to the surface.

KEEP features Jenna D'Angelo, Kim Krane, Madison Comerzan and Leslie Marseglia. The production team includes Kristin Skye Hoffmann (producer), Cate DiGirolamo (lighting), Chris Young (costumes), and J. Alexander Diaz (sound).

Francesca Pazniokas is a writer and musician whose work has been produced in New York, Chicago and London. She holds a BA from Georgetown University and a MA in Playwriting from Royal Holloway, University of London. KEEP is her first play.
