The Big Funk

By John Patrick Shanley

Directed by Esther R. Schwarzbauer

Omar, a knife throwing circus performer just can't hit the dot. His adoring wife, Fifi, slaves away to keep him happy. Their friend Austin, an out of work actor, joins them to contemplate how aweful society really has gotten. Jill thinks she's the villain and she's all greasy... Gregory's got the grease. A show about life and its obstructions. Romance? Comedy! Drama. Anarchy. Grease.
