What do a mysterious trunk, an Orwellian pizza ordering system, architectural design, tiramisu, Marilyn Monroe, Goofy, Bill Clinton, chaos theory, ropes, gags, and the world’s worst boss have in common?  You’ll find out in a play that Variety described as “a wicked treat for the morbidly inclined—a bonbon filled with arsenic.” One part Albee, one part Hitchcock, one part Tarantino, Mr. Kolpert is a play we’ve been dying to produce since day one. Comedy doesn’t come much blacker or better than this.

Reviews

Mr. Kolpert finally receives a smart, deliciously evil production, with carefully blended performances from its cast under the direction of Scott Yarbrough…Sometimes horror and humor go together hand in hand, and the audience my night were alternately aghast and amused, sometimes within seconds of each other.” –Oregon ArtsWatch
