About the Show

Part detective story, part meta‐noir, this Kafkaesque comedy takes us on a topsy--turvy quest that explores everything from the time continuum to criminal clowns. Part of the 2018 Dream Up Festival.

Clever, Ambitious, Confusing, Intelligent

See it if Some good writing and acting saved the day. But trying to incorporate several viewpoints made it something of a structural mess.

Don't see it if You don't feel comfortable with experimental theater.

Clever, Funny, Great writing, Quirky, Absurdist

See it if You enjoy something delightful and a little weird

Don't see it if Absurdist plots are not your thing, or you need to have everything fully resolved at the end of a play.

Clever, Entertaining, Quirky, Delightful, Funny

See it if you like comedies and are looking for a short play that will give you a few good laughs.

Don't see it if you are looking for a larger production. The set is very simple and requires imagination and paying attention to the narration.
