When Luck and Fate make a wager to finally prove who is the more powerful force in the universe, the life of Beverly Onion, the world’s loneliest mortician’s assistant, becomes the medium for their contest. From speed dating, to a penthouse apartment, to trekking across Nepal, Beverly is sent on a journey to discover her destiny (and an unlikely soulmate), in a play that explores the power of loneliness and the inevitability of fate (with plenty of references to Star Wars along the way).
Manic Pixie Dream Girl is a darkly comic story about a struggling graphic novelist who falls in love with a mysteriously silent manic pixie dream girl, and what happens when she becomes more than just a character type. Told in the style of a comic book, this world premiere production directed by Jon Tracy, and featuring the art of Rob Dario, is a beer drinking, pop-culture referencing, punch in the theatrical gut. More Judd Apatow than William Shakespeare, more High Fidelity than Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Just don't expect capes (there aren't any capes).
