written and directed by William Burke
performed by Marty Brown and Sam West and Regina Rocke!     Costumes by Asta Hostetter                                                                    Lights and projections by Jeannett Yew and Chris Kuhl

Presented at JACK                                                                                         505 1/2 Waverly Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11238 Between Fulton and Atlantic in Clinton Hil

April 18-27th @ 8.

Written while William was working serious hours in Times Square, FURRY follows one man in his Elmo suit while he navigates turf wars, knife wounds, the health issues of his only son, and his own lingering sanity. Armed only with his lone copies of The Art of War and Good Night Moon he gathers his army of Cookie Monsters and otherwise as he slowly expands his turf from 42nd St. to 45th and beyond. Is the audience full of Elmos? Will he have to take violent action? When Elmo is close, will he appear far? Will this end badly? We'll see.

This will be performed at JACK in Brooklyn.  We feel that JACK is a space that fits our aesthetic and artistic goals.  It's a space that supports a wide range of performances and community based activities simply by offering artists a room.  A big, shiny, tinfoil covered room.  It gives us a chance to become more innovative and creative by working with and jumping over the obstacles of a raw and unique space.  You know what compliments tinfoil? Red astro turf.

This is a show for one actor and one dancer.  It's very simple.  William tries to make inclusive and possibly cathartic theatre experiences using basic materials, language and talented performers and designers.  By funding this one design element, you will be providing the ground work for a theatrical and exciting evening.
