SAUSAGE. ENLIGHTENMENT. QUACK.
A thrill-seeking Guru enlists the help of the Bearded Lady and her deranged theatre troupe to expand Buddhism for a western audience in the Department of Redundancy Department’s (DRD) ‘Ten Buddhist Tales’. As the Guru wallows deliciously deeper into their psychoses, the theatre freaks attain their own epiphanies, and find their ducks.
“We think that’s the plot of the play,” says director of directing Antoine Valot, “and that’s a little distressing because the script we wrote wasn’t supposed to have a plot.”
This avant-garde, ecstatic, freakish play is the first major production by a group born of the Bug Theatre’s long-running, genre-defying Freak Train program, where randomness blossoms. The DRD honors its freakish roots in a show that’s wild, raunchy, bloody, and above all wild, raunchy, and bloody. Fittingly, the show premieres on Friday the 13th of March and runs through Sunday May 5th.
“This play is to the Magna Carta what a carwash is to a banana peel, ” says Kenn Penn, the DRD’s resident-artist-in-residence, “It is not recommended for children.”
