About Feeding Beatrice

June and Lurie Walker, the proud new owners of a creaky old gothic house, have a haunting new houseguest – and she’s ravenously hungry. When Beatrice arrives, she burrows deep into their existence and unearths secrets with explosive consequences. Expertly crafted, this spine-chilling thriller evokes the terror of Get Out and the suspense of Hitchcock’s Psycho. A gothic tale that metaphorically and literally reveals the dark-side of America’s past and its lingering effects in the present.

In the Words of the Theatre

Feeding Beatrice is both hilarious and haunting as Black couple June and Lurie seek to assimilate in the ‘perfect neighborhood’ no matter the cost. But their house becomes a very real character when an unexpected guest appears who will not make this an easy journey. We are excited to present this powerful play that uses the genre of horror to highlight the systemic and present obstacles many face in pursuit of the American Dream.”

-Aurora Theatre Co-Founder, President and CEO Anthony Rodriguez
