About this show

May 30, 1942. On the day Hollywood finally killed John Barrymore, Jack Warner offers Peter Lorre - another once great actor of the stage - a studio contract that will provide him with financial security at the price of artistic degradation. Realizing the temptation is great, Lorre plans a macabre prank that will render him unable to sign come morning. But every defiant step only leads him closer to signing the contract that will turn him into the monster he fears he's already become. This performance is presented as part of the New York International Fringe Festival. Schedule: Saturday, August 14 at 1:45pm Sunday, August 15 at 2:30pm Thursday, August 19 at 4:15pm Sunday, August 22 at 8:45pm Friday, August 27 at 9:45pm
