A FOOLISH TRADITION! Several new plays are created in just 24 hours. We'll have time for sleep later.
WORLD PREMIERE! Ripped from the headlines and based on a real event, Taste tells the story of two men who meet online and make a unique arrangement: One man will kill, cook, and eat the other. Over the course of the evening, secrets are revealed, boundaries are tested, and a strange but beautiful relationship unfolds. Deliciously voyeuristic, sinfully elegant, and surprisingly touching, this is Taste.
Warning: This production contains simulated sex and nudity, profanity, strong sexual references and disturbing content. Nobody under the age of 18 will be admitted.
NOW IN ITS NINTH SEASON! Each week, three continuing stories face off against two new tales. At the end of the show, you vote for the three stories that you would like to see continue on to next Saturday night, where their subsequent episodes will then be pitted against two completely new storylines. Each week's serials could live on for weeks... or be quietly smothered in their sleep – it’s up to you. But whichever pieces you vote for, one thing is for certain - by the end of the evening, you will be a Serial killer.
“Let’s just sit. Nothing bad can happen if we just sit.”
WINNER OF THE HOLLYWOOD FRINGE SPIRIT OF FRINGE AWARD FOR BEST WRITING & BEST FEMALE PERFORMANCE, AND NOMINATED FOR BEST MALE PERFORMANCE AND BEST PRODUCTION! Siblings Frank and Avis have lost their nephew, Ryan, in a mall. They wait at a pre-agreed-upon meeting spot for him to show up. Even as it becomes increasingly obvious that the boy is never coming back, that more action is needed, they’re too terrified to do anything more. Instead they stay at their bench, tearing into each other about their own personal tragedies, until they've become so wrapped up in their individual lonelinesses and failures that they’ve practically forgotten why they’re waiting at the bench in the first place. The Examiner: “Masterpiece… Wonderfully directed by Michael Nankin, this play is relentless in its pacing.”
OUR VERY ECLECTIC OPEN MIC! Join in... or just watch! In Sacred Fools' oldest ongoing show, ten performers get up to seven minutes each to do anything they want, from sketch comedy to dramatic readings to dance. Arrived too late to be one of the ten? "Charisma Round" performers get three minutes each! Look for TEN TOPS over the coming months on May 5 & July 21!
WORLD PREMIERE! Trevor and Penelope want a baby more than anything. But when their new water heater turns out to be a portal into another dimension, they find themselves on a space adventure to save all life on Earth. Baby-making will have to wait. The Mother Ship is an old-fashioned futuristic sex farce complete with slamming doors, singing aliens, and dancing ghost-eggs.
Sacred Fools launched its Workshop Series in order to provide opportunities for company members to expand and enrich material that is still under construction, outside of the pressure of production. There are currently five productions in various stages of workshopping, and public readings are tentatively scheduled to occur sometime in the summer of 2014. Learn more...
