Now Showing! In Live-Action 3D by Casaburdan Productions: an uproarious comedy about the staff of a run down movie theatre. This multimedia “cinema” experience is complete with zany trailers, ridiculous characters and jaw dropping musical numbers.

Caryl Churchill’s Drunk Enough to Say I Love You by Butros and Bels Theatrical Emporium
Guy would do anything for Sam. Sam would just do anything. This is the story of one man’s love affair with his country and how the blindness of love can go horribly wrong. Caryl Churchill’s controversial play receives its Philadelphia premiere.

The Argyle Station by Fresh Meat Theatre
Fresh Meat has returned with a new experiment that takes place at the intersection of spontaneous generation and suspended animation. That’s when HE enters with a story as old as fishing. Here, reality is speculative, meaning is decorative, and being out of your depth can be a good thing.

The Search for Samuel’s Love by Ramey and Ramey Productions
Twenty-minute stage play followed by talk-back session. One actor in Philadelphia and three others meet live via internet conferencing for a unique blend of interactive humor seen nowhere else. The story: three women meet to discuss their one true love, too little, too late.
Sunday 9/12 7pm, Monday 9/13 7pm, Tuesday 9/14 7pm $10
Greetings from New Jersey! A comedy about growing up and living in the great “Garden State!” by Second Place Champions
Come see the Second Place Champions take on the state of New Jersey. Guidos, the economy, the mafia—nothing is safe from this sketch and improv comedy troupe. Join us for a night of laughs and in some cases, harsh realities. Just kidding, only laughs this night.
Friday 9/10 9pm, Saturday 9/11, 9pm $10
9mm of Love by 2 Guys and a Duck Theatre
Hopelessness, a hitman, and the human heart. What more could you want in a love story? This absurd, honest tale explores just how far we’re willing to go when true love comes—whether or not the other person feels the same way.
Sunday 9/12 9:30pm, Monday 9/13 9:30pm, Tuesday 9/14 9:30pm, Wednesday 9/15 9:30pm, Thursday 9/16 9:30pm $10
High Dramma/Low Commedy by High Dramma- Walking FishTheatre’s resident sketch-comedy troupe:
