Famed fantasy-horror novelist Clive Barker (Hellraiser, Candyman) created this dark stage satire that follows a 16th-century simpleton called Crazyface on a fool's adventure. After receiving a mysterious treasure box, Crazyface is pursued through a dream-like magical world, accompanied by an ever-present angel, where he encounters a trio of international spies, a gang of lady bandits, a gender-bending pope, dangerous clowns, some pig farmers and a mystical conspiracy led by a fiendish cleric. Shadow Horse Theatre Company stages this surrealist fantasy, that explores religious hypocrisy and the nature of good and evil, while offering up some black humor as well. Learn More

Freshwater Theatre Company is proud to present The Book of Liz by acclaimed writer David Sedaris and his sister, actress and writer Amy Sedaris, starring Mame Pelletier and directed by Scot Moore at the new Nimbus Theatre in northeast Minneapolis!
Sister Elizabeth (Liz) Donderstock (of the Squeamish colony) is about to be squeezed out of her life’s work – making world class cheese balls that almost single-handedly fund the colony. Her midlife version of Rumspringa and her colony’s attempts to cope with her absence paint the backdrop for this smart comedy by the brilliant brother/sister duo of David and Amy Sedaris.
