About the show

Part of FringeNYC: What do a Baptist, a bro in handcuffs, and a botched funeral have in common? Find out in this rapid-fire dark comedy where one word has multiple meanings. Broadway Baby called it "ingeniously constructed and eloquently performed...4 Stars." More…

Categories: Drama, Comedy, Local. From The Barrington Collective. Written by Jenny King. Directed by Julia Hinson.

for a previous production "These independent stories are told simultaneously…This may sound rather complicated in theory, but in its execution it becomes beguilingly simple and as wondrous as turning a kaleidoscope. Through their studies together the cast has worked collaboratively for some time and this clearly impacts t...
