Democracy rules at every performance of this crazy comedy about a newlywed named Digby whose brand spanking-new marriage comes under fire from friends and strangers alike. And if that isn't enough, a nutty ex-girlfriend also shows up to further his marital strife. The audience decides by vote how they'd like to see the story turn out, in this show written and developed by Paul Storiale and his Comedy Bandits improv troupe. The Fringe Theatre Company brings this world-premiere production to North Hollywood's Avery Schreiber Playhouse. Learn More

First and foremost, if you can't deal with a glimpse of full frontal male nudity and a topless woman, don't go. If you can, this is a fun dark comedy that continues to get better as it goes.
Each of the actors play two parts, and they do such a good job you wonder "is that 'x' or another actor?
This is a very small theater - less than 75 seats - so every seat is a good seat. Parking is on the street, especially the other side of Lankershim, so be prepared to walk a bit or come early.
At 55+ our group was by far the oldest group in the audience, and my 81 year old aunt had as good a time and enjoyed the play as much as the twenty-somethings in the audience.

“No doubt about it — this backstage comedy will have Hollywood’s actor-types howling with laughter at themselves.” —Blade Magazine

Days before it’s set to open a play, a small theater company learns it doesn’t have the rights to perform the show and must scramble to come up with an all-new production — that utilizes the same actors, set and even a kissing scene. A character-driven comedy populated by drama queens, aspiring starlets, surfer dudes and dedicated professionals, Doubting Thomason takes the audience behind the scenes for a funny peek at life on the other side of the curtain.
