Jason on the Boards

Medicine Show presents the World Premiere of:

MAKING MONEY

and 19 OTHER VERY SHORT PLAYS

by William Saroyan

with new works written especially for these performances by Kitty Chen, John Gruen, Lella Heins, Brian Murphy and Frederick Turner.

comic

Saroyan's series of plays was written in the early 1960's but have never been produced on stage. They are a free-wheeling, comically skeptical look at American society. They embody a time between The Twist and Sex, Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll. Saroyan's plays question the belief system imposed on the 'common man.' They see us all stumbling toward some kind of truth.

Jason enjoys his fifth production with Medicine Show and says "you can always count on Medicine Show to confound its audience in good and bad ways, both intentionally and unintentionally. We unapologetically show you exactly what we think. This is realexperimental theater fresh from the 60's. If you've never seen a Medicine Show production, you really should at some point in your life.
