FRINGE 2016: THEATRE – Moonlight After Midnight – Tuxedo Cat – 4K

A man sits in a hotel room, lost in thought. A woman enters; maybe she’s expected, maybe not. Maybe the two people know one another, maybe they don’t. Maybe this is the beginning of the story, maybe it’s the end, or maybe it’s the middle. This is a piece of theatre that requires its audience …
