If you haven’t yet seen this collection of hilarious and haunting short plays, get your tickets now: Saturday night’s performance is its last!

A family struggles to find purpose in the face of impending doom; a lonely girl and a ghost are given a chance at love; two actors playing lovers barely conceal their mutual real-life contempt on stage; coincidences and synchronicities swirl on a man and woman’s first date; and a lifetime of lies is exposed, in the six short plays that make up Best of Brass Monkey.

Each script was handpicked by iDiOM audiences at our Brass Monkey Theater Club cold reading events, held this last fall/winter.

Playwrights submitted scripts from all over the country on the themes of Surprises, Prophesy, Revenge, Magic and Angst, and the audience voted each night to add their favorite script on that theme to the Best of Brass Monkey lineup.

The result is a funny, thought-provoking anthology show that surprises, amuses, mystifies, and entertains.
Final Shows: Thu/Fri/Sat May 28–30 at 7:30pm!
