Open Fist’s Welcome to Your Alternative

Realitytakes edge off collective anxiety

Welcome to Your Alternative Reality
— Take the edge off your week with a bracing tonic of laughter and lunacy! Highlights in this evening of interwoven one-acts and sketches include a liberal journalist working for a right wing news program; an octogenarian stressing about the future of the planet; high-level government leakers in love; and a dry cleaner who might be our next president. What do they all have in common? Each is stuck in this strange new post-election world we live in.

• Written and directed by Catherine Butterfield and Ron West
• Starring Lane Allison, Josh Banday, Tisha Terrasini Banker, Kiley Eberhardt, Bjørn Johnson, Dylan Maddalena, Paul Mischeshin, Beth Robbins, Emily Tuñon, Micah Watterson
• Presented by Open Fist Theatre Company, Martha Demson, artistic director
