Not everything is as it seems behind the ivy-covered walls of Yale, where an unlikely bond leads to an unthinkable favor. Writing professor Bella Baird is looking for answers, but a fateful encounter with a mysterious student could lead to life-changing consequences for both of them. Nominated for six Tony Awards, including Best Play, Pulitzer Prize finalist Adam Rapp's haunting 90-minute thriller will leave you wondering who you can trust and remind you everyone has a story - the question is how it ends.

Recipient of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Broadway Play, The Sound Inside is "absolutely riveting theater" (The Wrap), "a remarkable psychological mystery" (Deadline), "a stunning character study of someone you'd like to know" (Variety) and "90 uninterrupted minutes of tension." (The New York Times)

Director Cameron Watson says, "The Sound Inside by Adam Rapp is one of the most beautiful, thrilling, and unexpected plays I have read in a very long time. You've never seen or experienced anything like it before. We have assembled not only the best designers in Southern California, but the astounding duo of Amy Brenneman and Anders Keith to bring this gripping play to vivid life on the glorious Pasadena Playhouse stage."
