Their love for theatre and a hive-mind-like ensemble combine to produce some of the most unique live theatre you’ll ever see.

You’re in luck, dear audience because it’s time for PPFF!!!!!! (PGraph’s Personal Fringe Festival – Six Weeks of Specialty One-Off Experimental Shows

This week’s experiment: Fantasy + Medical Drama MASH-UP with special guest Lindsey McGowen improvising in the booth and Peter Rogers joining PGraph on stage! A hospital is always chaotic, a place of healing, change, curses, dragon egg storage, regrets, IV changes, 50 CCs of pixie dust, fairy grudges, long unending hallways, and sick little Billy in Room 271 who just wants to play checkers with the Gob-tors (Goblin Doctors). What is going on?? It’s a MASH-UP like you’ve never seen before.

This Friday, February 16th at 9:55pm – ONE NIGHT ONLY!

 

Total Show Runtime: ~70-80 min
