New Family-Fun Play BROCCOLI, ROOSEVELT AND MR. HOUSE! Has World Premiere At Fringearts' High Pressure Fire Service Festival
The Berserker Residents, Philadelphia's original comedic production company that create shows that spring from improvisation and curiosity, present the world premiere of a new work that's perfect for family members of all ages. BROCCOLI, ROOSEVELT AND MR. HOUSE! takes to the FringeArts stage this April 12-14, 2019, part of High Pressure Fire Service.
This interactive production asks big questions: can broccoli make you giggle? How much dance is too much dance? And does your house have feelings? The trio of Justin Jain, David Johnson, and Bradley Wrenn have whipped up a comedy for all ages that's unpredictable, original, fun, and vibrant. The three wacky title characters serve up unique impishness, snazzy games, silly sounds, physical flights of fancy that encourage interaction and elicit pure joy.
The Berserker Residents are collaborative performer-writers who aim to plow the depths of the ludicrous and downright silly with one hand, while making a firm connection to their audiences with the other. We have been hailed as "daft, ephemeral and joyous" by The Scotsman and have been praised for our "refusal to relinquish that unrefined creative spirit" by The New York Times.
BROCCOLI, ROOSEVELT AND MR. HOUSE! is part of FringeArts' High Pressure Fire Service, which takes its name from FringeArts' historic building, the first high pressure pump house in the country. Opened in 1903, the station pumped water from the Delaware River to fire hydrants across Philadelphia, connecting the city and helping it grow and thrive. This history of creativity and connectivity is at the very heart of the High Pressure Fire Service festival, which features new works from Philadelphia's most innovative performers. Addressing issues of representation, gender, accessibility, reproductive justice, and more through devised theater, comedy, and participatory play, these productions embody the vast range and exceptional talent of Philadelphia's rich performing arts community.
