Living Room. Dark. is not an official part of inFurnace Theatre's season. It is being produced by the LVD collective, which was formed by many inFurnace Theatre creative team members for the sole purpose of producing Living Room. Dark. We at inFurnace will be supporting the LVD Collective's production by (among other things) providing free advertising space on our website and Facebook pages. We support this production whole-heartedly and hope you will as well.
