The Night Librarians,
The Night Library

In the future the world is inhospitable to organic life. Our synthetic descendants are still struggling with the apathy that helped create our climate crisis. Can humankind awaken to the reality that we have created? Hennepin County Library and Saint Paul Public Library staff and artists explore the role of information and the library in society through an interactive collaborative narrative with puzzles, games, and humor.


Jon Mac Cole is a Theater artist from Minneapolis, co-artistic director of Bedlam Theatre and co-founder of Eternal Cult, and a lover of libraries and dogs.

Annie Henly is a local scenic designer and theater maker. She enjoys creating scenery from alternative materials and building dioramas.

David Pisa has created plays with puzzles for Walking Shadow Theatre Company, built day-long, week-long and one-room treasure hunts for various organizations, and wrote the story for MysteryPhone, a smartphone-based choose-your-own-adventure game for Northern Spark 2014.

Rebekah Rentzel is a director, educator, and stage manager who makes radically ridiculous theater pushing the boundary of feminism and comedy. She co-founded Raw Sugar, a company making adventurous, imaginative projects driven by women, and is the theater instructor at Open World Learning Community.
