Remy Bumppo's 2014/2015 Season:
WELCOME TO THE FUN HOUSE
Subscriptions now on sale!
The purpose of comedy, it has been said over the centuries, should always be “to teach and to delight,” or perhaps a better way to express that would be “to enlighten as well as entertain.” Sounds like a manifesto for “think theatre”!
These three delightful plays use Comedy in very different ways: as a prickly satirical spur towards political reform; as an emotional means to reach for the mysteries of our mundane existence and to embrace one’s family; and as a mind-stretching matrix of madness through which to compare and contrast artistic and political revolutions. And yet these three plays also share a common comic purpose—to use the inspiration of laughter, whether it springs from irony, recognition, or wonder, as a means towards understanding, knowledge, and enlightenment.
Welcome to The Fun House!
All shows performed at the Greenhouse Theatre, 2257 N. Lincoln Ave.
