In the distant past of 2007, Casey writes fanfiction for the hit Alfie Wunderkid series of books. She writes really, really, really bad fanfiction. On purpose.

The plot makes no sense, the characters are inconsistent, the dialogue is at the level of a second grader who swears, and… it's hugely popular.

As the fanfiction comes to life, what started out as a joke slowly morphs into a way for her to cope with with absentee parents, an overbearing sister, and having only one friend who, let's just be honest, is a bit of a douche.

Sunbathe in Darkness is equal parts nonsensically hysterical, heartfelt (in an angsty teen sort of way), and a love letter to the pop culture trends of the turn of the millennium.

"This show was one of the funniest comedies I’ve seen at fringe this year. I really hope they get an extension because I want my former emo friends to see it. If you haven’t lived (or rather, survived) the Era of Emo circa 2005-2009ish you won’t get the inside jokes. But if you’re like me and spent your middle school days layering Hollister polos and writing “s(he) be(li)ev(ed)” in nail polish on the sides of your black Converse then you’ll be laughing your head off. They included so many of the cringe-worthy and yet all-too-real references right down to the little things (like how being gay was for some reason an insult back in those days)."

"It’s so goofy and ridiculous that you’re almost unprepared for when it gets real, a testament to the writing of Adam Cash and Drew Petriello, who handle the balance well and give the audience a message and something to think about... Highly Recommended"
