You have to cross a bridge to get to Nathan’s house. Crossing in is easy. But crossing out – as Alice is about to discover - is almost impossible. God of Obsidian is a dark fairy tale about a gaslighting relationship as one woman desperately seeks the story that will take her back across the narrow, dangerous bridge to freedom.
The cast features Rebecca Comtois (Steal the Stars) and Mac Rogers. The podcast is produced by Sean Williams with Sound Design by Bart Fasbender. The live stage production of God of Obsidian premiered at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival in 2017 to great acclaim, earning a Critic's Pick from City Beat. HiLoBrow raved about the New York production saying, "Rebecca Comtois gives a quietly titanic performance of vulnerable trust and courageous, embattled self worth."
