The Electric Baby

When a young man is killed in a car accident, a group of fractured souls encounter a magical dying baby and begin to rewrite the stories of their lives. Folk tales and folklore weave throughout this darkly comic story of sad endings, strange beginnings, and the unlikely people that get you from one place to the next. During its 2012 production, The New York Times said, “The imperceptible magic that pervades human existence and the power of myth to assuage sorrow are invoked by Stefanie Zadravec as she entwines the lives of strangers in THE ELECTRIC BABY, a touching new drama.”
