  2. In this devised, clown-esque piece, Happenstance Theater's troupe of eccentrics walks the precipice at the end of the world. Their play lights up the darkness like a firecracker.

    BrouHaHa is an existential escapade inspired by images of refugees fleeing on foot, Edwardian workers, cinematic treasures like La Strada and The Seventh Seal, and the dark comedy of Samuel Beckett.

    "Impressive comedic timing, cunning word play, and incredible live sound effects and songs"
    - Washington City Paper

    “The high level of ensemble work continues to impress. These multifaceted actors/
    singers/clowns/mimes and movement artists are so attuned to each other, it’s
    easy to believe they’d be inseparable when the world ends.”
    - J. Wynn Rousuck, WYPR
