Change your fate, change your mind, change your relationship status. The Adams State University Theatre Department production Mind Your Head opens at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11 and continues nightly through Saturday, Oct. 15 in the Xperimental Theatre. Senior theatre majors, Isabel Schneider directing The Fairy Garden and Trace Gross directing Horrors, confront the challenge of intruders, strippers, fairies, and decapitation.

The Fairy Garden is a dark comedy which twists the fate of four ordinary people. A wife decapitates her husband in order to run off with another man. A magical fairy appears and grants only a single wish, changing the lives of the individuals forever. In the process, they may discover the truth behind what it means to be in a relationship and the limits of love.

Horrors follows the thrilling tale of three young women who are spending a weekend of relaxation at a cabin in the woods. However, they receive an unexpected, possibly deadly visitor. Will their fates play out like a bloody horror movie or can they take control of their story and survive?

It will be a night of horror, comedy, and decapitation.

"Change your fate, defy the expected," said Gross. Schneider adds: "Make a choice to find the meaning behind every relationship, and the meaning in the choices you make, for you never know who is lurking out your window or coming up the garden path."

What do you mean death is permanent?
