Club Dead

Welcome to Santa Verde, a tropical paradise where the puppet master provides exotic, fantasy vacations for the rich and adventurous. His latest client is a fellow named Stewart Black. Mr. Black thinks that his darkest desires are going to come true on Santa Verde, but little does he realize this special vacation club can also turn his dreams into inescapable nightmares. Soon he will be asking himself some very serious questions: What is reality and what is part of his chosen vacation script? Who can he trust, or is everyone wearing a mask of deception?

Is Dr. Cross actually there to correct Black's withered legs? Is Mr. Cremasco truly a financial consultant who will stabilize Black's investment portfolio? Is the lovely Celeste really falling in love with Black? What is real? Who can he trust? Will the puppet master return him to his normal life, after the vacation is over? Indeed, what is normal, once he's experienced Santa Verde? Club Dead is a modern morality play that is laced with sardonic humour, a roller coaster ride that will keep audiences guessing until the last chilling fadeout!
