Synopses of select previous productions:
Why I Want to Fuck Ronald Regan: The year is 1971, and Ronald Reagan’s California governorship has raised a lot of questions: Is neoconservatism the savior America needs? What are women and what do we do with them? Is consumerism the new psychosis? Why are car crashes turning everyone on? Is the age of Hollywood over? Can American citizens be nostalgic for death? And most importantly, why do I want to fuck Ronald Reagan? Inspired by JG Ballard’s “The Atrocity Exhibition”, Why I Want To Fuck Ronald Reagan is an immersive, interactive work of literary collage.
Grandpa Johnson is Dead: A choose-your-own-adventure menu of micro-performances on American desire, death, nostalgia, and indulgence in Hollywood, in HOLLYWOOD. Staged at Grandpa Johnson’s Cocktail Club, the show allows audiences to “order” scenes as they please. This collective mode of storytelling will explore everything from LA’s Bukowski-fetish and networking pro-tips to American ritualism and the earthquake that will change life as we know it.
