A New Dark Werewolf Comedy

  • 18+

Misanthropy, a new play by Hannah Nielsen, is a timely dark comedy about navigating self-transformation - told in the style of campy werewolf horror. 

Run Time

The show runs approximtely 110 minutes, just shy of two hours, including a 10 minute intermission. 


Lyla is finally starting to get her life together. But her friends start to worry when her good mood depends on fresh meat... Misantropy is a story of self-transformation, family and frienship told with quick humor and blood. The show performs in in 90 minutes, plus intermission. 

Misanthropy is produced by Wayward Works, a new production company focused on championing new work and new artists in the Pacific Northwest. We are a team of experienced Seattle artists and hope to bolster the return of Seattle theatre post-COVID with more independent productions.
