Johnny Showcase Hosts an Evening with Tempo Dello Spuntino:
Put Up Your Avant Garde
From the creators of Philly Fringe hits The Jersey Devil and The Giant Squid comes an evening of madcap tom-foolery. Bradley Wrenn, Justin Jain, Brendon Gawel and David Sweeny provide hearty slices of surreal comedy with song, dance, mask and prop in the tradition of a wholly imaginary Eastern European theatre troupe. Expect hijinks and low humor as inimitable host and "Top-Shelf Crooner" Johnny Showcase leads an hour of raucous proceedings.
by Eugene O’Brien, directed by Tom Reing and presented by Inis Nua
Madi Distefano returns to the role that garnered her a Barrymore Award for Leading Actress in a Play. Performed with Anthony Lawton, Eden is a heartbreaking tale of two people living archetypal Irish lives of quiet desperation. Intersecting monologues detail a marriage that has fallen victim to drink, delusions and lack of communication. After their anniversary plans turn disastrous, Breda and Billy must finally begin to confront the serious issues that have caused them to slowly drift apart. An intimate, universal drama about a couple in crisis.
Go Irish: The Purgatory Diaries of Jason Miller
by Tom Flannery and Rodger Jacobs
An intense one-man show that examines the soul in afterlife of the late Pulitzer Prize winning playwright (That Championship Season) and film actor (The Exorcist) Jason Miller. Stuck in purgatory until he can answer for the mess that his life became before he died of a massive heart attack in 2001, Miller walks us through the shattered detritus of his career and alcoholic existence, a deeply troubled man who turned his back on Hollywood and stumbled home to Scranton, PA, to become the town drunk. Go Irish is a classic pub tale performed by actor Bob Hughes, a Scranton native and childhood friend of Miller’s.
