About the show

The Brick and Theater Reconstruction Ensemble present the world premiere of a mysterious tale of a town in search of its missing mayor, and a stranger named Don who's looking for his forgotten identity. More…

Loosely inspired by the works of playwright Eugene Ionesco and filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock, 'Rhinbecca' is set in a small town where the mayor has gone missing. A stranger named Don arrives, but he doesn't remember who he is or how he came to be there...or does he? Is his sudden appearance related to the mystery of the missing mayor? No one seems to know the answers to these questions, but Don's determined to get to the bottom of it all.

"When the cast is taking their final bows and literally no one in the audience is clapping, it is not a good sign...Fusing cast and crew, production and reality, beginnings and endings, but without style, engagement or clarity, it seems to be absurd theatre for the sake of absurdity, but with non...
