A HighTide production.

You wanna know a secret? When the two of you came out of me, your little hands were wrapped around each other’s throats. Choking each other. Feel up on your neck. Feel that? That’s Selene trying to kill you.

Halloween on Cape Cod. The twins Michael and Selene live with their mother. They are turning 30, and it’s a nasty world outside.

Muhmah is the startling début of Jesse Weaver; a hilarious, hideous and richly original piece of American Gothic that reveals that the devil you know can be worse than the devil you don’t.

Muhmah was performed at HighTide Festival 2009.
