Copious Love Productions Premieres THE FOG MACHINE PLAY

pixeltracker

A quick note from our beloved Playwright and Director, Brendan Mack: "It is important to note that in the ever changing world we live in, the one unchanging constant is that people love theatrical fog. No matter how bad your day is, or what life events may be pushing you around and making you feel trapped- oh so trapped, so unbearably trapped- you know that would all change if you were given the opportunity to run through a room full of theatrical fog. We are changing people's lives. And by people we mean you. And by Lives, we mean fog. And by you, we mean Machine." While this show may not give you that exact opportunity, it will be close!

On the surface, The Fog Machine Play is a series of short plays, each strung together by the use of a fog machine that was purchased for a production in 2013 but was never actually used. Never given the chance to live up to it's full potential. We had to give it it's time in the spotlight. While The Fog Machine Play explores the various uses of theatrical fog, it also explores what it is like to produce fringe theatre in this day and age. It toys with what can (or cannot) happen during a live show and how an ensemble rises to the occasion when faced with challenges of live theatre. Part sincere and part absurd, this show will truly be an "unfogettable", once in a lifetime experience.

Join Copious Love Productions for our second full-length production of Season 4. The Fog Machine Play was created by Seattle Drag Artist and STAGEright Artistic Director Brendan Mack and developed into reality with the help of Copious Love's monthly Writing Group, Artistic Director Chelsea Madsen and Associate Artistic Director Rachel Tyrrel.
