    $7.00 for $12.00 - Murder, Mayhem and Real Estate in Satirical Comedy "owners"


    Social niceties fly out the window in Owners , a bitterly funny, taut comedy by acclaimed Eng.. read morelish playwright Caryl Churchill. Skewering our collective hunger for wealth and power, Owners is ruthless as it follows real estate baroness Marion, who schemes to buy out a family from one of her properties. Set in dingy butcher shops and shabby apartments, the story depicts a giddily dark side of buying and selling, as sexual favors are handed out like candy, murders get carried out with varying degrees of success, and a baby becomes a bartering tool. It all adds up to a vicious satire of human greed, delivered with brio by the Interrobang Theatre Project.

Small bar, but it moves very fast despite the large crowds and has a good selection. My only major complaint is that after ....

Amazing theater. Great place to see a show. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. The balcony is a bit steep, if that's a concern for you be aware.
