Centenary Stage Company's Fringe Festival kicks off October 8 through October 11 with Rent Control. Written & Performed by Evan Zes, an actor/writer born and raised in the Bay Area, who portrays some 30 different characters in this wild-but TRUE one-man-play that recounts a period in his life as he struggled to survive, live and pursue his acting career in New York City.

When Evan falls backwards into one of the few remaining rent-controlled apartments in NYC, he finds a way to make money and pursue his dream, turning the apartment into a lucrative Airbnb scheme - that is until his moneymaking scheme backfires threatening to ruin his life. This cautionary tale has had audiences howling with laughter and at the same time on the edge of their seats. Critics have called it "...cheerfully profane," a "...surprise thriller" and "...dangerously hilarious."

Performance dates and times are Thursday, October 8 at 7:30 pm; Friday October 9 at 8:00 pm; Saturday, October 10 at 8:00 pm and Sunday, October 11 at 2:00 pm.
