The River of Haircuts - A Serious Play

The River of Haircuts is a ridiculous comedy about democracy, governance, and relationships in a world...similar to ours.
By Kyle John Schmidt | Directed by Jenny Lavery
Livestream support: Blake Addyson, Jenny Hanna Chambers
Note from Jenny:
JENNY: It's about democracy.
MOM: So, is that a yes?
Whether you've cut your teeth at the PTA, been on a planning committee, or just tried to put together a book club, you know that getting people to work together is HARD.
The River of Haircuts asks a question as old as democracy: Why is it so difficult to get anything done? Over the course of the play, we watch a village council unravel in real-time when faced with the unimaginable: a river that cuts hair.
This play is kind of like if Roald Dahl and Bertolt Brecht got together to write a play after attending a bad HOA meeting. It's fantastical, fun, and political with nary an obscenity to be found. And you can enjoy it for free over Zoom with our one-night only developmental reading.
Intrigued? I hope so!
