intimate + immersive performance


a very immersive, very terrible first date

You met Emma online. Her profile says she likes rescue dogs, Tetris and therapy. Today is your first date. Too bad it will be terrible.

RED FLAGS is a highly interactive, immersive theater experience for an audience of one, exploring the misunderstandings and unexpected connections on a bad first date.

Our premiere run at the 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival is sold out. To learn about future productions and tickets to RED FLAGs, click the button below and sign up for the Capital W mailing list.


RED FLAGS runs June 1st through 25th at the Hollywood Fringe Festival. It is currently sold out.

RED FLAGS is open to audience members of all gender identities, sexualities, relationship statuses, levels of mobility, and with any amount of personal dating baggage.  Audience members must have a cell phone and be over 21 years of age to participate. 

RED FLAGS is an intense, one-on-one experience; one actor, one audience member. It contains adult content and may be disturbing to some. As on all the bad dates that loom large in your memory, there is nowhere to hide, and as much as it pains you, you must participate.
