The greek pantheon and professional wrestling collide in KAYFABE, a no-holds-barred family dramedy. After a tragic in-ring accident leaves their father dead, the estranged children of the wrestler, Antaeus, meet to hash out his legacy. But as memories of their father are shared, they soon realize that line between good and bad is far more complicated than what it seems. Based loosely on the Labors of Hercules, KAYFABE blurs the lines between what is real and what is scripted. Between honoring legacy and making your own.

> Run time is approximately 120 minutes with one 15 minute intermission
