Directed by Paul Ford and featuring a two person cast, this show dives into the past and all that we once loved and left behind with witty, sharp dialogue and unmistakable chemistry.


When Mariana rents an abandoned cabin on the edge of a dried out, toxic lakebed, she looks forward to uninterrupted privacy for a (literal) reconstruction of her past. The silence is sabotaged only by the infrequent and unreliable intrusions of Grohl, the repairman. As the scope of Mariana’s plans become clear, the two form an unlikely partnership, and set out to find a shared history buried in the dust and clouds of toxins. 

Directed by Paul Ford and featuring a two person cast of Serouj Bingham and Hannah Kauffmann, Welcome to Retroland dives into our pasts and all that we once loved and left behind. With witty, sharp dialogue and unmistakable chemistry, Retroland is a charming and hilarious roller coaster ride of human growth and understanding.
