REPULSING THE MONKEY: A NEW COMEDY SET IN A BAR, PERFORMED AT A BAR, ABOUT SO MUCH MORE THAN BARS|
Family ties ignite in Repulsing the Monkey, a new, heartfelt comedy by Michael Eichler about siblings who struggle to honor their parents' legacy as the specter of gentrification looms. With the sudden inheritance of their parent’s bar, Janey (Kim Katzberg) and Danny (Sergey Nagorny) are besieged by prospective owners from the coasts who seek to purchase Jablonski’s and make it their own. Emily Elizabeth Bennett, Kaila Wooten, Samuel Barnes Jaffe, and Asha Devi hilariously capture the would-be gentrifiers, who think little of erasing the bar’s character and discarding its history. As they compete over their vision for the space, Danny and Janey struggle to make a decision that will change their lives and the spirit of their hometown
