DEFENDING THE CAVEMAN Comes to Metropolis Performing Arts Centre

Broadway's longest running solo play Defending the Caveman returns to Metropolis Performing Arts Centre November 4 & 5, 2021.

Caveman is a hilariously insightful play about the ways men and women relate. It has both sexes roaring with laughter and recognition. Lots of affectionate nudging goes on during the performance as audience members recognize themselves in the stories being told on stage.
