There’s a brand-new comedy in town, and it promises to be a doozy. It concerns Oliver Mendelsohn, a man stranded in a nightmarish future where he’s pursued by cannibals, mermen, and racist robots. His only way out is on the spacecraft of a brassy alien named Richard Gere. The play is written by Second City alum Shawn Handlon and Mike McGettigan, the award-winning author of such plays as Space Fuckers. Handlon and McGettigan also star, with direction by funny lady Lauren Bickers.
Performances continue through May 2, with Sunday matinees at 2 pm.
