Playwright Matthew Freeman and director Kyle Ancowitz (The Theater Accident) return to The Brick with CONFESS YOUR BUBBLE. Their previous appearances include the much-ballyhooed productions of Glee Club and An Interview with the Author and That Old Soft Shoe.
In CONFESS YOUR BUBBLE, Senator Carl Corpuscle, a Democratic Senator from the Great State of Washington (not D.C.) presents a court-mandated address about his life in government to local high school students, in order to satisfy the terms of a plea bargain. Attendance is not mandatory, and only students over 17 may attend. Senator Corpuscle discusses his role in the Democratic Administration, delivers a civics lesson, and offers dire warnings—with slides to illustrate his points.
CONFESS YOUR BUBBLE, written by Matthew Freeman. Directed by Kyle Ancowitz. Featuring Steven Burns (“Steve” from Nickelodeon’s Blues Clues).
