How do we find meaning in an upside-down world? What actions should we take? Do our efforts even matter? “Meaningless” presents the unedited, uncensored, ancient book of Ecclesiastes in a one-act, one-person performance packed with timeless riddles and timely wisdom. The show makes its New York City debut in a limited run from February 15-March 5 as part of the FRIGID Fringe Festival.

From wine to wealth, concubines to snake charming, “Meaningless” examines the meaning of everything under the sun. This modern presentation of a 2,000-year-old meditation on the human experience weaves the universal themes of wisdom, foolishness, pleasure, and suffering into an unforgettable live performance that is at once funny, pensive, and tragic.

“Meaningless” is performed by Oklahoma City-based actor Rodney Brazil and directed by Emily Etherton. Rodney Brazil is a writer, director, performer, and producer. Original works as a playwright include All My Ex-Boyfriends are Gay, Worthy Causes, The Ultra-Conservative Theatre Summit, and Naked Brunch, which streamed live at the 2020 Theatre Crude Fringe Festival. “Meaningless” comes to NYC after touring the United States in 2022, with stops in Atlanta, Denver, Kansas City, Omaha, and Oklahoma City.
