ABANDON, the frightening, kinky, and darkly humorous theatrical experience at Vegas Theatre Company (VTC), is proud to partner with the First Friday Foundation for a special Mental Health Awareness Night in benefit of ARTuOK?.

Held Friday, July 19, 2024 at 7:30 p.m., a portion of all proceeds from ABANDON’s Mental Health Awareness Night will go directly to First Friday’s ARTuOK? initiative, which aims to support mental health and self-care through the arts.

ArtUOK? is a free art and resource fair that supports mental health and self-care through the arts. Serving hundreds of local students, families, veterans, and community members as a whole, ArtUOK? provides workshops, special speakers, as well as inspiring entertainment all focused on creative, healing alternatives for such challenges as depression, anxiety, isolation, or suicidal thoughts. As a unique opportunity for individuals to develop new, artistic ways to navigate through a crisis, ArtUOK? demonstrates the unique benefits and impact that the arts can have on an individual’s mental health and everyday life.

ABANDON pushes the boundaries of live theater, while taking audiences on a terrifying journey through the life and writings of the Marquis de Sade during his years spent imprisoned in an asylum. Delivered in rapid-fire, wordless vignettes and enhanced by an original, killer soundtrack and terrifying visual effects, ABANDON is a truly unique theatrical experience, where psychological terror, grotesque beauty, and edgy kink collide to create a horror production like no other. This is an experience that will haunt audiences long after the final curtain falls. ABANDON builds on director Jana Wimer’s incredibly successful production of Urban Death, which has been performed to sold-out crowds and rave reviews in Los Angeles, New York, Edinburgh, and Cape Town. The ABANDON creative team also features Hollywood composer Joseph Bishara, best known for The Conjuring and Insidious franchises, as well as renowned sound designer Katie Halliday, who won an Emmy Award for Stranger Things.
