The Durang Shebang!

Seldom-performed short works by Christopher Durang, the American playwright known for his unique blend of outrageous and absurd comedy will highlight The Durang Shebang! a fundraising event to support the IRC's  Fall 2014 production of absurdist author Eugene Ionesco's Rhinoceros. 

The IRC ensemble (and friends) will bring the humorous, seldom-performed shorts to life.  Many of the evening's performers will also appear in the IRC's production of Rhinoceros as part of the 2014 FringeArts Festival, September 3 - 21 at the Skybox @ The Adrienne.  At press time, scheduled The Durang Shebang! performers include David Stanger, Sharon Geller, Ethan Lipkin, Sonja Robson, Mike Dura, Tomas Dura, Bob Schmidt, Lee Pucklis, Kristen Norine, Heather Cole, Andrew Carroll, Sarah Knittel, and Jennifer MacMillan. There will be two showings of The Durang Shebang! at L'Etage Cabaret, 6 pm and 8 pm.  Tickets are $20 and may be purchased at Brown Paper Tickets: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/616332. 

The Durang Shebang! is a 70 minute compilation of short works spanning the Tony award-winning playwright's career. Selections include: Mrs. Sorken, the evening's hostess, expounding on an evening at the theatre as performed by Sharon Geller; DMV Tyrant, the all-to-familiar escapades of a man trying to renew his license performed by David Stanger and Kristen Norine; Diversions, where a man contemplates his existence, which becomes exponentially complicated once the community gets involved; Women in a Playground, in which two mothers discuss the sins of the father; Phyllis and Xenobia, where two sisters quarrel over differing recollections of their mother's demise; Gym Teacher, where our worst grade school athletic nightmare comes to life, and Kitty the Waitress, where a fine dining customer is treated to a fancy feast courtesy of the feline persuasion.
