Night Soap 

Wednesday, January 24 @ 8PM

Written & Performed by MATT ROGERS & BOWEN YANG


Night Soap follows the matriarchs of two families: the Hersheys and the Nestles, whose competing chocolate businesses have been locked in a dead heat for decades. But now, the two women confront each other after advancements in chocolatiering technology have pushed them closer to reaching a common goal: to sell the first chocolate products in space. High drama, high camp and high hair abound in this live soap opera.
