    Friday, March 20, 2015 - 7:00pm

    Each summer, the four Liars - Cadence, her cousins Johnny and Mirren, and their friend Gat, spend their vacation on the family’s private island off the coast of Massachusetts. During the last summer, Cadence suffered a mysterious accident leaving her unable to remember what happened. For the next two years, in a fog of painkillers, debilitating migraines, and amnesia, Cadence tries to piece together the summer where everything fell apart.
