DRIVING AROUND to Play Cannonball and Philly Fringe

Driving Around will play Cannonball + Philadelphia Fringe next month. The production will have a limited run from Sept 14-16, at The Living Room, Fidget Space.

A provocative brew of physical comedy, absurdism and American naivety invite you onto an imaginative and fanciful ride. Perpetual fabrication and buried social commentary are revealed with effervescent zing and cheeky sassiness. A show full of insights into what unites us and separates us, the host takes you on a ride that is so far past stupid that it becomes compelling!

For ages 13+.
