WILD - A Clown Western
We all know the iconography of the Western. Dusty streets. Tavern brawls. Rugged individualists surviving on sheer gumption. Boots. Hats. Guns. WILD seeks to discover how that iconography bends when deconstructed by an ensemble of buffoons. Through a collaborative, physical, improvisational process, our show uses the Clown theatrical form to refurbish the Western’s tired old tropes. The result will be something unexpected--and utterly stupid. So pull up a stool, nameless wanderer. Feast your eyes. There’s laughter about, and it’s catching.

This apartment has everything! Song. Dance. Jokes. Zoning laws. Environmental collapse. Housing crises. Existential crises. A game show. A therapy session. All this in under 250 square feet. America has a fever for Tiny Living. Whether out of economic necessity or cultural zeitgeist, the micro-apartment has captured the public imagination. Is it salvation or shtick? A new model for sustainability or crass profiteering? CONTAINERTOPIA is a 21st-century take on vaudeville that looks at the ever-shrinking living spaces that city-dwellers submit themselves to. With synthesizer-heavy Weimar cabaret tunes, original music, and projection-based set design, our multimedia cabaret explores and exposes the popular trend of tiny living. What afforded to us is affordable? Created and performed by Julia Frey (New Paradise Laboratories, ComedySportz) and Sam Day Harmet, with Alex Kramer.

Ubu Faust
Brought fresh to the Fringe from New York City, Ubu assumes the role of Faust in this raucous, rapid-fire puppet comedy. Inspired by the plays of Alfred Jarry, the legends of Faust, and the traditions of Punch and Judy, UBU FAUST is a satirical exploration of a most grotesque and unlikable man and the lengths to which he’ll go to satisfy his many hungers. Well, two. Two hungers. He really only has the two. Contains boorish villainy, laughable special effects, gratuitous wordplay, and puppet sexuality. Minimal audience participation. Except in one bit. Well, three. Three bits. But they’re simple. And relatively painless. Created and performed by Broderick Jones. Part of the Philadelphia Fringe Festival. Buy tickets for The Turn of the Screw and Ubu Faust at the door and get a discount for both shows! The Turn of the Screw starts at 7:30pm. To learn more about The Turn of the Screw go to:

Meet the members of the floundering Angry Goose Theatre Company whose rehearsal is interrupted when Jesus stops by. Perturbed by their lukewarm reception, the irate son of God condemns the members of the company to experience a new apocalyptic scenario every day, for eternity. Can the members of the company learn enough about themselves, each other, and Armageddon to save the world, not to mention the world’s worst production of Hamlet. A comic fusion of performance traditions, Every Day, APOCALYPSE! incorporates elements of dance, circus arts, and puppetry to the role of art in the apocalyptic landscape. Positing the end of the world in its many incarnations as metaphor for the ever mounting challenges to artistic expression in the twenty first century, the show explores the impulse to create and where the responsibility of the artist lies.

The Turn of the Screw
A provocative tale of suspense, horror and repressed sexuality, The Turn of the Screw is a ghost story originally penned by Henry James in 1898, adapted for the stage by Jeffrey Hatcher. It is not a tale for the faint of heart, but a tale for the brave who can stand to wait it out in the dark. A young governess journeys to a lonely English manor house to care for two recently orphaned children. But she is not their first governess. Her predecessor, Miss Jessel, drowned herself when she became pregnant by the sadistic valet, Peter Quint, who was himself found dead soon after under mysterious circumstances. Now the new governess has begun to see their specters haunting the children, and she must find a way to stop the fiends before it is too late. But one frightening question tortures the would-be heroine: Are the ghosts real, or are they the product of her own fevered imagination? Presented by Leila and Pantea Productions. Part of the Live Arts Fringe Festival.

The Magic Flute
In Mozart's masterful comedy about love, truth, and the pursuit of enlightenment, prince Tamino sets off to rescue Pamina, the beautiful daughter of the Queen of the Night, from the mysterious Sarastro. But with the help of the birdcatcher Papageno and three Spirits as their guide, Tamino discovers an even bigger adventure, and is united with his love along the way. Celebrated co-directors Suzanne Andrade and Barrie Kosky present The Magic Flute in a playfully subversive, crowd-pleasing production that evokes a meeting between 1920s silent movies and David Lynch, with the singers performing amidst fanciful animated projections. Created by the British theatre group 1927, the LA Times calls this Magic Flute “a stunning live-action cartoon. It is fun for the whole family.”

Plus, you’ll see things I’ve never been allowed to do on TV.” He’s also contemplating more sophisticated protective gear for folks in the first few rows…just in case things get messy…again.

GoKash OnSTAGE presents Seventy IV Seconds... to judgement
GoKash OnSTAGE in residence at the Arden What is “Justifiable Homicide”? What roles do paranoia, race, and fear play in a split decision to kill? Should social class, personal histories, or individual assumptions factor into a months’ long evaluation of justice? Is there enough space for the application of law in a killing which takes seconds to commit? Who are we, who decide? How are we to decide? In the next installment of his justice series, “Seventy IV Seconds… to judgment”, Kash Goins introduces us to a jury of 6 who have been deadlocked for over a week. In an attempt to uncover the truth buried in the facts as presented in the case, the youngest juror who is not much different than a central figure in the killing, offers a unique tactic. An exercise purposed to move the jury beyond feelings which are buried beneath the cover of what they’ve come to accept as their personal truths. To be heard. To listen. To process the law as instructed.

A seemingly harmless bet between the old women quickly escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden. As heartfelt as it is deliciously inappropriate, this is a hilarious comedy.
