About This Show

Due to popular demand, the dreamscape vaudeville All Wear Bowlers, created and performed by Trey Lyford and Geoff Sobelle, returns to the OBIE award-winning HERE Arts Center for an encore presentation.

Two silent film clowns fall off the screen to find themselves trapped in a live clown show. Caught in an existential nightmare, they employ all the tricks of their trade in an effort to escape it. all wear bowlers is a two-person absurdist play that melds physical comedy with visual metaphor, stage magic and vaudevillian patter in an exploration of identity and memory, nostalgia and amnesia. Elements drawn from the desolation of Samuel Beckett, the beauty of Rene Magritte and the pathos of Laurel and Hardy collide, creating a surreal landscape of venomous ventriloquists and belligerent bowlers.
