Lark Theater presents Will Durst’s new solo outing “Durst Case Scenario”, a comedic exploration of the changing times in America.
Durst Case Scenario is a rollicking feast of outraged and outrageous satire as up-to-date as the latest 4 am Oval Office tweet.
In this lightning-paced 85-minute comedic tour-de-force, Will Durst analyzes where we are, how we got here and what possible destinations lie ahead.
Along with the changes we’re experiencing, he also details the wacky zany antics, palace intrigues and pitfalls of polarization threatening our country and civilization in this, The New Abnormal.
Durst describes this strange new world where everyday without a mushroom cloud is a victory. He details the anxiety of never knowing when the president will strike the flint that shoots a spark to light the fuse to Armageddon. Prepare to meet the funny side of defiance. Because laughter allows room for hope to creep back on the inhale.
The Durst Case Scenario is playful and ludicrous and whimsical and droll and silly and serious and sarcastic, mischievous, incisive, trenchant, profound, and chock full of jokes. Many funny ones. A unique theatrical event delivered with stand-up timing and not less than a modicum of poetry.
Due to the subversive nature of this show, a portion of each night’s proceeds will be donated to fund a non-profit whose mission will be to bury wire cutters along the Canadian border. Will Durst’s performances are brought to you by the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution. At least for right now. See this show before this sort of thing becomes illegal.
