"CRIME SCENE" PRESENTS CONTROVERSIAL
"Crime Scene" is the ongoing late-night-Saturday hit at Sacred Fools Theater Company. The content of the hit comedy usually sends up crime fiction, film noir, and genre pieces, often in serialized format. In its second year "Crime Scene" still attracts capacity audiences.
On Sept. 18 at 11 p.m., "Crime Scene" will present "Ted Kaczynski's Ship Of Fools", a dramatization of a controversial short story written, in prison, by the convicted Unabomber, which has been published in an underground student magazine at SUNY Binghamton.
In this tale of a near-mutiny on the high seas, an outbreak of political correctness aboard a sailing vessel threatens the lives of the ship's officers, crew, and passengers.
This narrative will be presented in its entirety on September 18. "Ted Kaczynsi's Ship of Fools" has been adapted for the stage by Brad Friedman.
On the same bill:
"Punter's Bundle" by David Rosenthal. This is a Presidential mystery that hits way below the Beltway.
"Crocodile Gandhi, Solver Of Crimes" by Paul Plunkett. The title says it all.
"Crime Scene" is presented on Saturdays at 11 p.m. after the mainstage show. Tickets are $5. Special: Admission is free with paid admission same evening at mainstage show. Created by Scott Rabinowitz and Danielle Surrette. At Sacred Fools Theater Company, 660 N. Heliotrope Drive, Hollywood. This is between Vermont and Normandie, just south of Melrose. Adjacent parking lot.
