    All I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Play

    Based on several disastrous theatrical experiences, this play examines the process of putting on a show that is less than good. We go from the audition—where the director is more worried about roast beef than paying attention to the warm-up exercise, and the neurotic cast pretends to be bacon—to rehearsals—where a passive-aggressive stage manager gives everyone grief. This bad play within a play won't win any awards, but will keep audiences in stitches. Learn More

    A band of lovable yet impossibly inept thespians are taking on a genre that will not die—the murder mystery! In this whodunit, the misguided performers attempt to nail down devilish British accents, understand what a red herring is, and figure out how to die onstage without looking all gross and stuff. Meanwhile, the director and stage manager wouldn't really try to murder someone during the murder mystery. Would they?! Learn More
