About this show

2003 FringeNYC-Award-winning CollaborationTown, A Theatre Company, Inc. presents the world premiere of The Deepest Play Ever: The Catharsis of Pathos. Before Mother Courage, there was Mother LaMadre. In The Deepest Play Ever, an unrivaled masterpiece of post-post-apocalyptic genius, our antiheroine, Mother LaMadre, along with her children KitKat and Golden Calf and her librarian sidekick Swiss Cheese, bulldozes her wagon through the Fifth World War and the wasteland that is New Europe. They navigate all the pitfalls of self-important Epic Theatre: puppets, projections, prostitutes, prophecies, the angel of death, blood, deconstruction, rapidly-approaching fate, soliloquies, singing, dancing, zombie battles, and actors trying to out-Brecht each other. Featuring irony more ironic than irony, satire more satiric than satire, and sardon more sardonic than sardon. Don't understand? You never will, human. FringeNYC Winner: Outstanding Playwrighting Part of the FringeNYC Encores Series Schedule Saturday, Sept 9 at 4pm and 9:30pm Monday, Sept 11 at 8:30pm Sunday, Sept 17 at 930pm
