He’s a charming young professional. She’s a sarcastic thrill-seeker. After their first date, this young and fun-loving couple form a unique relationship when they discover something special they have in common: they’re both serial killers.

Buried tells the story of Rose and Harry as they join forces, setting out on a trail of murder and deception while trying to navigate their way through the world of normal, adult relationships. Combining a beautiful, folk-inspired score with a bitingly funny script, this new musical puts a sinister spin on the traditional rom-com formula, examining the world of relationships when pushed to its extremes.
