Ugly Betty meets The Terminator in this new sci-fi musical by D'Arcy Drollinger (Shit & Champagne, Project: Lohan). When lonely, put-upon secretary Eileen spots an ad for a fully functioning mechanical male companion, she takes her future by the reigns and places an order. Mr. Irresistible soon arrives on her doorstep and, true to fantasy, a romance blossoms. Just one problem: He's not her mail-order groom. He's an exterminator on a service call. Soon the official Acme Brand Mr. Irresistible comes knocking, and the humble exterminator can't compete with the custom-made dream man. But just as Eileen is settling into a state of bliss with her new perfect beau, a coworker she's been complaining about turns up dead, and Eileen becomes suspicious of her robotic Romeo. She contemplates sending him back -- where he'll be disassembled for parts -- but Mr. Irresistible catches on and begins a fight for his life. Will Eileen finally find her voice and learn where true love has been all along? Learn More

This show is more than delightful as it is insightful as well. The performer takes on multiple distinct personae as he weaves a tale of right wing fundamentalism run amuck. If you have a liberal funny bone this show is for you. I loved it.

“Funny … unexpectedly insightful.” — San Francisco Chronicle
“[It’s a] zany, well-executed solo play.” — San Francisco Bay Guardian
“a breathtaking joyride” —Huffington Post
In Jurassic Ark, Brother Dallas has a made-for-TV ministry and one majestic mission: He’s hell-bent on making a big-budget blockbuster showing that Creationism is Truth! That man and dinosaurs once lived side-by-side! But sins from the preacher’s past (now 17 million views and counting) and Satan himself threaten his holy vision. Not to mention Hollywood – where studio hotshots have their own twisted take on bringing in a big box office.
Busting with its own special effects of whirlwind physicality and a compelling soundtrack, Jurassic Ark is written and performed by David Caggiano, who has performed at The Marsh, StageWerx’s Solo Sundays, CounterPULSE’s WordsFirst, Berkeley’s Tell It On Tuesday and, of course, EXIT Theatre.
_Jurassic Ark _is directed by solo specialist Mark Kenward, who has created, performed, developed and directed nearly two dozen one-person shows, including his own acclaimed adaptation of Moby Dick.
