Cloront is a play that delves into the anxieties of the teenage experience amidst social pressures, tests of success, and technology defining identity. This layered play follows Jane who finds herself in a strange school-like environment and follows a mysterious person named Anna. As Jane gets further lost into this world, she is interrupted by memories long since past.
