Faction of Fools Theatre Company

Join our world premiere production, Love Like Tuesday, written by playwright Doug Robinson in collaboration with the devising ensemble of Faction of Fools.

Told through the lens of Faction's signature style of Commedia dell'Arte, a style of comedic theatre originating in Renaissance Italy that utilizes masks and high energy physicality, Love Like Tuesday hearkens to the nostalgia and structure of classic Rom Com films…but with a twist.

Doreen Dawkins triumphs as the best lunch lady to ever grace the kitchens of Pangolin High, despite being equipped with an oven that won't go above 175 degrees. Between that and caring for her ailing mother, Doreen finds herself with a full plate and no extra room for dessert…and certainly no space for love. Doreen is surrounded with the whirlwind of life, but time stands still when an old high school flame, Cameron Noodle, fills a long-term sub position at Pangolin High.

We are thrilled to offer a sliding scale ticket price!

We’re offering three options:

$25: Market rate ticket price
$35: "Pay it Forward" price
$15: Lower income / Child price

This allows a ticket to be obtained at multiple price points based on the circumstances of the purchaser. To create a structure where all can enjoy financially accessible theatre, those with access to more resources pay more per ticket which provides the ability for those with less access to pay less.

Can't wait to see you at the show!
