It’s midnight, but that doesn’t mean the world slows down. “Night Night, Roger Roger” by Megan Roni Ragone is a comedic fanciful play about the world after the sun goes down. Roller skating Nanas, kids with tin cans, literary obsessed vampires, clumsy security guards, kids without tin cans, quirky game show hosts, and more. This play is a plea for every person to stop growing up so fast. Take your moment with the universe and enjoy it. We hope your dreams smell of onions and your thoughts fill with peaches. A good night to all!
