FEBRUARY 23-MARCH 5, 2023

A foreigner finds a "lucky" penny on the ground. When he offers it to the pleasantly anxious stranger sitting next him, it sparks an absurd and startling conversation about superstitions and American bad luck. What follows is an off-kilter day in the life of eight strangers as their lives intersect in comical and bizarre ways. Superstitions is a revolving-door of missed connections, funny misunderstandings, and ridiculous monsters that spring to life before our eyes.
