Ruth Virkus and Brenna Jones, “Dawn’s Inferno — A Divine Comedy” (2009)

“Midway through her life’s journey, Dawn Ahlgren finds herself in a dark wood… Darkwood, Minnesota. Returning to her hometown for her 10 year high school reunion, Dawn finds herself trapped in the Inferno Bar and Grill, surrounded by classmates determined to prove that hell is indeed other people.
The Flowershop Project, a new theater company based in Minneapolis, is excited to be premiering this original script by company members Brenna Jones and Ruth Virkus. Featuring an original soundtrack by SvenErik Olsen, and based on The Inferno by Dante Alighieri, Dawn’s Inferno is an innovative and hilarious update of Dante’s classic trip through Hell, re-invented as another kind of divine comedy.”    —The Flower Shop Project
