Bryan Conger

"Featuring a supremely talented cast and ably directed by Bryan Conger, Caroline, or Change is a sometimes exhilarating, sometimes disorienting play that is not easily forgotten."

Successfully scaring someone is a science and an art; it takes a precise manipulation of lighting, sound and suspense to create a feeling of uneasiness. Triad Stage [Bryan Conger] capitalized on all three key components to artfully craft their scare tactic during its opening performance of Deathtrap.
