Another great production from Piano Fight.

Lots of fun, lots of humor, excellent acting, excellent storyline.

Quite a different concept. We enjoyed it but there should be some advisement on Goldstar and the show's website as to this show really being appropriate for ages 17 and up due to the excessive use of F words (certainly appropriate within the...continued

My date and I loved it! Great writing, great acting, great methods for involving the audience (free beers- cheezes!), a real sense of an ensemble working off of each other.

Description

Two years ago, San Francisco playwright Daniel Heath and local production company PianoFight caused a sensation when they came up with the novel idea of a fully scripted play in which the audience votes on how the plot will proceed. The result was_ FORKING!_, which opened to rave reviews and played to sold out shows in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Heath and PianoFight are at it again, this time pitting audiences against the holidays in FORKING II: A Merry FORKING! Christmas, a choose-your-own-adventure play making its premiere at the Off-Market Theaters.

Christmas Eve is the most magical night of the year, unless of course you happen to be working at the mall._ FORKING II: A Merry FORKING! Christmas _chronicles the final hours of the Christmas shopping frenzy through the eyes of a pot-dealing Santa and his cookie-stand partner in crime, a mall security guard on his last legs, a bride-to-be deserted by her would-be fiancé, and a bored mortician who’s got nothing to do while those near death hang on until Christmas Day before they get back to the business of dying. The fates of these five characters and whether Christmas can be saved for each is left up to the audience who will vote at crucial forks in the plot to determine the final outcome.
