Geffen Playhouse today announced the world premiere of SOMEONE ELSE’S HOUSE, a live, virtual, and interactive theatrical experience written and performed by playwright, director and Obie Award-winning multimedia artist Jared Mezzocchi (VietgoneRussian Troll Farm).

Someone Else’s House is a true-life haunting story based on the Mezzocchi family’s terrifying experiences inside a 200-year-old New England house. It marks the first horror-themed show to be produced under the Geffen Stayhouse banner, as well as the sixth show in the series to date. Additional Geffen Stayhouse productions are currently in development.

“In a year of complete isolation, I found myself digging deeper into my family story and was shocked to unearth unbelievable truths that connect these dots,” says Mezzocchi. “I hope that audiences not only find themselves thrilled by the haunted nature of the experience, but also grow to appreciate mortality, family, and the undeniable need for ghost stories amidst such a challenging time in the world.”

Someone Else’s House will take place via the Zoom video conferencing platform and each performance will be limited to a maximum of 40 households. Each household will receive a haunting kit in advance, not to be opened before showtime, which includes materials to help set the scene for the story, as well as important artifacts to be used to interact during the performance.

About the Author: Remy Cashman

From humble beginnings as a bisexual art kid who drank more coffee than a 40-year-old author, Remy now holds a BFA in Film Production from Chapman University and is a proud member of the HorrorBuzz team (and still a bisexual art kid who drinks too much coffee). They were first introduced to the world of horror and camp when their grandma showed them The Rocky Horror Picture Show at age 5, and never looked back. When they're not writing cartoons or working on movies, one can spot them in various clubs around Los Angeles performing very, very self-deprecating standup comedy. Howdy ho!
