Quotes & Highlights

Imperial Fizz generates a strange eerie power…brilliant poetic content…there is no American writer more thoughtful, in an explosive and surreally comic way, than Brian Parks.” —The Scotsman
“Touche! A bit like Noel Coward on speed, Brian Parks’ thirties-style two-hander is a tour de force of lightning exchanges of exquisitely barbed wit between a couple who fill the silence as they wait for… well, what indeed?” —The Stage


Recommended for guests age 13 and older.

About the Ticket Supplier: Renegade Theatre Experiment

Renegade Theatre Experiment unites a group of artists with a shared desire to express their identities through a variety of performance techniques. As a collective, Renegade thrives on the initiative of its members in finding and creating bold works of art which speak loudly to the Renegade community and the Bay Area. RTE performs works of intellect and catharsis which stimulate the mind and the heart, the body and the soul. Drama, music, dance, and improvisation provide opportunities to share the experience of being human: to think, to cry, to rage, to laugh, to love, to wonder.
