A Voluminous Evening of Brevity


A VOLUMINOUS EVENING OF BREVITY is an evening of short plays both comic and tragic dating to the beginning of the 20th Century. Dysfunctional Theatre Classics’ mission is to produce underperformed scripts from the previous centuries or to give a new take on “classic” plays of past centuries. All of these works are still considered Dysfunctional; the idea is to encourage the audience to perceive them in a new light and to realize that dysfunction isn’t a product of 21st or even 20th century life; it’s a product of the human condition.
