Bright Colors and Bold Patterns, which ran for three weeks last winter at the Barrow Street Theatre, will return off-Broadway for a limited engagement at SoHo Playhouse from November 12-January 7, 2018. Opening night is set for November 20.

The play is a solo comedy written and performed by Drew Droege (Drunk History, Bob's Burgers) and directed by Michael Urie (Torch Song, Buyer & Cellar, Ugly Betty). It is described as follows: "Josh and Brennan are about to get married in Palm Springs on a lovely Saturday afternoon. However, the night before becomes a drunken, drug-fueled riot, because their friend Gerry has arrived, furious that their invitation says 'Please refrain from wearing bright colors or bold patterns.' In the struggle for equality, what do we really want? What do we lose? And is there any cocaine left?"

The production features set design by Dara Wishingrad and is produced by Zach Laks in association with Riki Kane Larimer. Tom DeTrinis serves as associate producer.

Bright Colors And Bold Patterns was originally presented at VS. Theatre Company in Los Angeles and directed by Molly Prather. It was remounted at Celebration Theatre in Los Angeles and transferred to the Barrow Street Theatre in 2016.
