About This Show

The Road Theatre Company launches its 15TH SEASON with the World Premiere of this witty, wacky and intelligent comedy — Bunbury!! Written by one of L.A.’s most prolific and critically acclaimed playwrights, Tom Jacobson. The last Road Theatre and Tom Jacobson collaboration was Ouroboros – 2005 L.A. Weekly Award winner for Best Production of the Year!!! Joining the team is award-winning director Mark Bringelson. When he finds out that he is only a fictitious character who never appears in The Importance of Being Earnest, Bunbury uses his double anonymity to infiltrate and alter classic literature, starting by accidentally giving Romeo and Juliet a happy ending. The resulting transformation of such classics as The Three Sisters, A Streetcar Named Desire, Waiting for Godot, and even Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven spawns a new sub-discipline in literary criticism and may even change the world. A comedy that proves everyone’s life means something–even if they don’t exist!

Appropriate For Ages: 17 and above (brief nudity).

Dark: Thursday, November 24th for Thanksgiving

The Pay-What-You-Can-Nights are Sunday, October 2nd and Friday, October 7th.
