Producer Stephanie Ward is proud to return to the New York Fringe Festival this year with HEADS at Teatro SEA. Written by Evan Twohy, directed by Will Storie, and featuring four of Upright Citizens Brigade’s top performers.
HEADS, a strange new comedy about love and leafy greens, is a sketch play in two parts. In "Freshfaced," can Colin save his relationship despite having a toaster for a head? Colin is happy to get a job to help fund his stay in his girlfriend's apartment. But when it turns out the job requires him to test out human head alternatives on his girlfriend each night, Colin finds his identity and relationship are flimsier than he thought. In part 2, "Bubble & Squeak," is Dolores smuggling cabbages in her pants? Declan and Delores' honeymoon gets off to a terrible start when they are detained in airport security on this odd charge. Declan is surprised at the accusation. Delores is not. Part satire, part farce, and part romance, HEADS is a timely, absurd look at love in desperate, modern times.
The HEADS cast features Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) trained improvisers, all of whom are currently part of UCB's famed house teams, including Lauren Adams, Ben Rameaka, Morgan Jarrett, and John Murray, who regularly appears on 30Rock. Director Will Storie's credits include The Colbert Report, UCB, College Humor, and Landline TV.
