Drunk Lion

Media Title

Back in June, this hilariously absurd one-man show was one of more than 15 original solo works that premiered in nontraditional venues across the city as a part of Philly’s 3rd Annual SoLow Festival. Due to the show’s success, writer and performer Chris Davis will be giving locals three more chances to catch it, now new, improved and professionally produced. Very loosely based on Davis’ time living in Mexico, where he taught English for three years, the show tells the tale of a young foreigner who develops an unlikely friendship with a lonely, alcoholic Mexican lion (who sounds a lot like Antonio Banderas) while getting hammered in a cantina. If this sounds crazy, keep in mind that Davis single-handedly morphs into each and every bilingual character. No habla Español? No worries—he also translates the scattered bits of Spanish dialogue in the midst of the action. -Nicole Finkbiner
