A collection of surreal, subversive, comedic one-acts - incorporating staged and video segments
The show features sinister, otherworldly forces overtaking television networks, re-imagines the MTA as abureaucracy-driven group of super-heroes, and immerses the six-member cast in the delicious pathos of French toy store owners. And let's not forget the dead clowns!

spurn debuts in the West Village!
Produced by Ross A. McIntyre & Neil Trivedi, an all-new multimedia production of spurn debuts at the 13th Street Repertory Company, 50 W. 13th Street between 5th & 6th Aves, on Wednesday, October 4th!
After a year+ hiatus, sketch comedy veterans spurn return to the stage. Under the new direction of acclaimed independent filmmaker Neil Turitz ( Two Ninas, Knots) spurn continues their tradition of "hard-edged, envelope pushing, vaguely absurdist" ( NYTheater.com) comedy that will no doubt "leave the audience gasping for breath between guffaws as relentlessly funny skits whip past." (The Village Voice). Premiering in 2001, spurn has been presenting madcap whimsy the likes of which America has never seen. Disturbing and hilarious, spurn is a dark carnival of pathos and merriment. Their signature blend of bitter angst and sharp social commentary goes down easy and works with Atkins. And we're funny. Did we mention that?
Directed by Mr. Turitz, the returning cast of spurn features the extremely talented Lara Jane Dunatov, Matt Klan, Ross A. McIntyre, Bethany Sacks and Jennifer Spragg, and warmly welcomes our newest hotheads, Kristen Rozanski and Eric Zuckerman.
spurn will perform Wednesdays Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:00 p.m. from October 4th through the 21st, 2006 . Running time is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. Tickets are $20 for general admission. For advance purchase, please visit theatermania.com. For further information, please call 212-760-4788. And don�t forget to check out spurn-nyc.com.
