THE CARNIVAL IS COMING TO TOWN --
(F)UNFAIR opens on July 22nd!
Dacha Theatre is thrilled to announce the 2022 premiere of (F)UNFAIR, an original devised production co-created by Celia Pearce and Nick O'Leary, previously slated to premiere in summer 2020.
(F)UNFAIR is a partnership with Boston-based Playable Theatre Project, and will be directed by Nick O'Leary.
Our newest immersive and interactive performance invites you to explore the surreally dysfunctional world of (F)UNFAIR! Step right up to enjoy fair favorites like midway games, roving performers, and other attractions — not to mention the fair food. But as you get to know the carnies and the rules that govern their lives, you might start to realize just how UNFAIR this FUNFAIR really is. The good news is that you have a chance to help to change the rules, but can you work together with your fellow attendees to figure out what’s broken and how to fix it? Explore the hidden world of (F)UNFAIR! Discover the secret lives of beleaguered carnies! See your choices transform the world around you!
Performances will run July 22 – August 7, outdoors at Billings Middle School.
