BEFUDDLED 101 Comes to The Brick

BEFUDDLED 101 Comes to The Brick

Monologist Max Silver is jolted from his mundane existence into a schizophrenic Max Headroom style dystopia. An immediate intersection of his parental resentments, his painful breakup, a deficient understanding of American politics, Russian history, artistic manifestos, and every bit of media he's ever consumed result in a hilariously failed journey of self-discovery.

A manic, multi-media event featuring vodka shots, spit takes, vaudeville dance, and wholesale theft from established artists.
Join Max as he endures breakneck cue-calling and biting criticism by his antagonistic Stage Manager Laventry Beria, and incomprehensible heckling by Ivan The Translator.

Befuddled 101 was previously mounted in the 2017 Spotlight On Festival at The Wild Project,NYC under the title:

101 Reasons to Thank Your God for Donald J Trump, Vladimir J Putin, and My Dad who's a Dick
