The performance my boyfriend and I went to was almost sold out. We don't agree with some of the other reviews. We felt that everyone knew their lines, with one exception of a slip but that got everyone laughing. The intimate experience of the...continued

This is a very silly play but for less than $10 and 45 minutes it was worth the time and money. I would also recommend being fairly drunk. That most likely helped me enjoy it.

Description

By Jeremy Gable

Finally, a celebration of the world’s newest and quite possibly best religious movement, Pastafarianism! Landless Theatre presents the DC Premiere of The Flying Spaghetti Monster Holiday Pageant, a ridiculous, fast-paced comedy written by Jeremy Gable of California’s Hunger Artist Theatre.

Founded in 2005 by physics graduate Bobby Henderson to protest the decision by the Kansas State Board of Education to require the teaching of intelligent design as an alternative to biological evolution, The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster venerates a supernatural Creator that resembles spaghetti and meatballs.

In his Noodly Wisdom, the Flying Spaghetti Monster created the world out of trees, a mountain and a midget. To prove the existence of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, Henderson has graphed a correlation between the decline of pirates and the rise of global warming.

The play picks up after the Kansas State Board of Education decision to add Intelligent Design to its curriculum. School teacher Ms. Fism can’t keep up with the number of religions that she has to teach. For Week 37: Flying Spaghetti Monsterism, the audience is treated to an Old School holiday pageant with pirates, strippers and a beer volcano (!) From the beginning of the world (including the aforementioned trees, mountains and a midget) to present-day (with contemporary Internet prophet Bobby Henderson), it’s a celebration of free speech, religious freedom, diversity, equality, and of course, pasta.
