York College Theatre will present Oliver Lansley's "The Infant" at 7:30 p.m., April 9-12, in the Perko Playpen Theatre, located adjacent to the Waldner Performing Arts Center.
According to a news release, the play's plot includes no reference to a particular time or place. Government officials discover a picture that is of great interest to them and interrogate the victims they believe were the ones to have drawn it. The picture could spell the destruction of civilized society and change the world.
Theatre major Rachel Cherubini, a senior from Willingboro, N.J., will direct the production.
"I wanted to do a show that was creepy and that would made the audience uncomfortable in a good way," Cherubinin said in a statement. "I wanted to make the audience think, and keep them on the edge of their seats."
Cherubini has had two internships at York Country Day School, where she served as the assistant director of their fall play "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" and their spring musical "Avenue Q."
The free performances are open to the public.
