Actor - New Work One Act Play
The Dyon Collective
New York, NY
Maeve Aurora Chapman
Apricity, a personal wellness and spiritual ascension cult, have always been bound together against the world. However, due to the unexpected death of their leader, Pan, the cult members suddenly turn against each other. Darling, the successor to leadership, is fighting to keep control of the cult's legacy. Will she be able to prevent their community from being destroyed from the inside out? Or will the group turn into something evenn more sinister.
WHY WE'RE DOING THIS
We want to show that victims of cults are not weak or stupid, they were simply taken advantage of by a studied and well practiced manipulative individual. Anyone can be recruited into a cult. We also want to show what a one-on-one cult looks like, which are a much less known form.
'Smith' is a member of Apricity who joined with the love of his life. However, since joining, his love has endured her Trial (the ascension to the Other Life) and has left Smith alone. Heartbroken, grieving, and confused, Smith is more susceptible as ever to the cult's influence.
