Three short sharp comedies designed to be played together as a trio: Menu Turistico; A Man Walks into a Bar; Oedipus Butchers the Classics.
Three Italian characters are invited to dinner with The Pope. The meal - a surprise trick - has them examine their individual states of hopelessness, godlessness and despair. A black comedy, this is Italian Idol for the soul.
Two stand up comedians, a man and a woman, battle it out onstage. Their weapons? Jokes based on the classic form, “A man walks into a bar...”. They duel and drink, occasionally breaking out to do mini-scenes. The dialogue is fast-paced and action gets wilder as the play goes on.
A short sharp satyr play which parodies the story of Oedipus among others.
