The University of South Carolina Upstate Shoestring Players will perform Steve Yockey’s “Very Still and Hard to See” in the Humanities and Performing Arts Center. Performances will be held at 8 p.m. Feb. 26-28 and 3 p.m. March 1.

Sometimes, bad things do happen for a reason. “Very Still and Hard to See” recounts the history of a cursed hotel and the unfortunate guests who stay there. From an expanding hole in the floor to the possessive ghosts that live there, a series of bizarrely inexplicable events follow.

“Very Still and Hard to See sheds light on a slice of humanity that is not so pretty,” said director Patric Phillips ’12. “It highlights our darkest desires and challenges our morals. This play will test you in a way, that if you fully surrender as an audience member, will leave you pondering…”

The cast includes: Harley Bevill of Greenville, Chris Smith of Goose Creek, Chauncey Meeks-Owens of Spartanburg, Jordyn Chelf of Boiling Springs, Jasmine Johnson of Hartsville, Zoe Sneed of Greenville, Howie DeWitt of Greenville and Anthony Gregory of Boiling Springs.

Ticket prices are $8 for general public and $4 for USC Upstate students, faculty, and staff.
