Horse Trade Theater Group presents Red Bastard and CACTUS: The Seduction



Written by:  Eric Davis with Sue Morrison

Red Bastard is a Dangerous Seductive Comedy Monster! After 5-star reviews and sold out shows across North America and Europe, America’s premiere bouffon unleashes a pompous theatrical master class in this critically-acclaimed Bouffon show. His mission:  to charm, disarm, shock and seduce.  His target: you

Red Bastard is not clown.  He is not here to please you.  He has come to make you surrender- to play the audience like a devil does a fiddle. Experience this exquisite monstrosity as he delicately leads you through a no-holds-barred theatrical master class- demanding to know nothing less than the existential query, “Who the hell do you think you are?”  Lines will be crossed and laughs will be had in this interactive feast of biting wit, improvisation, and physical prowess. Audiences should be prepared for anything to happen in this interactive show, in which Red Bastard engages the audience in raw conversation, uncovering ridiculous and disturbing truths.

CACTUS: The Seduction

a solo show by Jonno Katz

Directed by Mark Chavez

CACTUS is a unique physically devised solo show that is both irresistible love story and carnival of boundless imaginings, a hilarious search for love in the most unlikely of places. Phil slips between reality (walking through a desert with 2 weird characters) and fantasy (talking directly to the audience spinning yarns and leaving them in hysterics). It is a multi-layered, theatrical, stand-up, explosion of imagination.
