Cris returns to a place he once used to know, only to find a world he no longer recognizes. As he connects with a new stranger tasked to show him around town, an unexpected spark challenges all of Cris’ preconceived notions. the strangers, a CBT-commissioned World Premiere, is a modern day reimagining of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, depicting a contemporary American world thrown into chaos.
