This Week Sucked

CSz Philadelphia presents This Week Sucked, a new show that takes an audience member’s terrible week and turns it into fast-paced comedy the last friday of every month.

Based on long-running shows in L.A. and Austin, This Week Sucked invites Philadelphia audience members to share stories of bad bosses, breakups, hookups, adulting challenges and general woes. The diverse cast recreates those stories through a series of comedic improvised scenes.

This Week Sucked is about finding the comedy in crappy situations and the release that comes from seeing it acted out on stage,” says director, Erika May McNichol. “I love watching the audience member when they see their story interpreted onstage. They laugh the hardest which is a great feeling.”

The show is BYOB. Bring your best drink and your worst story and laugh at your crap week.

February 22 @ 8pm

Teenage Dick

A brilliantly hilarious take on Richard III, Shakespeare’s classic tale of power lust, TEENAGE DICK reimagines the most famous disabled character of all time as a 16-year-old outsider in the deepest winter of his discontent: his junior year at Roseland High. Picked on because of his cerebral palsy (as well as his sometimes creepy Shakespearean way of speaking), Richard is determined to have his revenge and make his name by becoming president of the senior class. But as he manipulates and crushes the obstacles to his electoral success, Richard finds himself faced with a decision he never expected would be his to make: is it better to be loved or feared? 

Two-time Tony nominee Moritz von Stuelpnagel (Present LaughterHand to God) directs Mike Lew’s (Tiger Style!) devastatingly funny, sharply written new play about perception, disability and the lengths we’re willing to go to rise above our station in life… and high school.
