Open: 02/03/17- Close: 03/03/17 A History Of Servitude
A History of Servitude is a comic survey of world history, from the dawn of man to the present. A celebration of the eternal struggle of the underdog; A History of Servitude is part improv, part sketch comedy, part insanity. The Department of Fools brings audiences on a wildly participatory, slightly intoxicated, and extremely bawdy ride through history. 

The internationally diverse company includes Yair Ben-Dor (ABC's Quantico), Jessenia Cuesta, Gjermund Gjesme, Matthew A.J. Gregory (Power of Darkness/The Mint), Silvia Morigi, Ben Rademacher, Andy Richardson (Newsies & Gypsy – Broadway), Brandon Salerno, Alec Seymor, and Anna Tempte. 

"‘A History of Servitude’ is a breath of fresh air…and a rich celebration of Commedia dell'Arte.

Open: 01/30/17- Close: 01/30/17 A Night of 'Bad' Theatre
Prepare yourself for an ironically laughable evening! Random Access Theatre is thrilled to present A Night of 'Bad' Theatre! Playing off of traditional theatrical tropes and cliches, playwrights Caroline Prugh, Robert Price, and Samara Weiss have crafted purposefully 'bad' short plays, which will be performed by Random Access' resident company of artistic associates at Joe's Pub at The Public on Monday, January 30th at 9:30pm. In addition to these three brand new short plays there will also be live music from local bands, including DDWhite, and an auction, all benefitting Random Access' 2017 season. This upcoming season will feature regular programming, including Drunk Restoration Comedy and RAWR, as well as RAT's first repertory season: Resistance and Rebellion in Rep.

Open: 01/25/17- Close: 01/28/17 CARDIFF
Cardiff is based on a true story.

In 1972 in a gritty section of Cardiff, South Wales, on the morning following the installation of his sculpture, British Artist, Garth Evans, recorded the comments of passers-by to this work. When this sculpture was suddenly transported to their neighborhood, residents responded with surprising passion. As they grappled with their encounter with the other, what they actually said provokes us, teaches us and moves us. This play is their words.

Two years ago, Leila Philip, an award-winning writer and Professor of Literature, reviewed the 1972 tape and was excited by the idea of transforming it into a play. She produced a script, and together with Garth Evans, the artist at the heart of the controversy, began working with director Andrew Resto to create Cardiff.

Open: 01/25/17- Close: 04/15/17 GEORGIE: MY ADVENTURES WITH GEORGE ROSE
Georgie: My Adventures with George Rose is an exhilarating story, and indeed brilliantly told. Two-time Tony® Award-winning character actor George Rose (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, My Fair Lady, The Pirates of Penzance), a bon-vivant with a flair for the dramatic and the eccentric, starred on the Broadway and London stages alongside luminaries like Katharine Hepburn, Noel Coward, Dame Edith Evans, Richard Burton, and Laurence Olivier in a storied career that met an unexpected end.  

In this giddy, humorous, and moving celebration, Ed Dixon recounts his own tale of how he came to know and admire George over a twenty-year friendship until the unimaginable changed everything.
