The Wildcats play their home games in Rupp Arena, a facility named for their former coach, Adolph Rupp. Rupp Arena is the largest arena in the United States built specifically for basketball, with an official capacity of 23,500. As a result, Kentucky consistently ranks first in the nation in home game attendance. The team’s huge fan base is often referred to as the “Big Blue Nation” or the “Big Blue Mist”, the latter because the fans typically engulf tournament and neutral-site venues and cities.

Who Holds the Devil draws on Goethe’s Faust as its literary basis and takes place in the not-so-distant future, where climate disaster has long since reached the ecological tipping point, resulting in civilization’s collapse. A band of surviving human beings (performed by Claire Beiber, Shayne Brakefield, Jenn Little, Samuel Lockridge, Raylee Magill, and Claire Rose) must journey to a remote location, where the potential to revitalize the earth’s ecosystems is rumored to exist. As the narrative unfolds, audience members and performers join forces to uncover lessons from the past. Performances will be highly interactive, with the outcome of the story depending heavily on choices made by audience members throughout the evening.
