Experiencing Interruptions?


College freshmen Sabrina, Preston, and Jan are in the middle of their orientation and their intrepid orientation leader; Bobby, has gotten them lost in the woods during the scavenger hunt. After hours of aimless wandering and increasing tensions, everything explodes when the four stumble across a dead body. Being thrusted into their new situation; the four students come together and navigate what to do with the body. Aghast! is a quick-witted comedy about growing up and doing what’s right.
