About the Play: Duncan has always been a pretty boring guy. Then he stumbles upon Brenda, a sad young woman who’s about to end her life. Convinced he’s fallen in love, Duncan strikes up a desperate deal: if he can get her to laugh, she’ll give life another shot. There’s just one catch: Duncan isn’t funny. At all.
A contemporary life and death tragicomedy of three misfits, Punch Up navigates a hostage situation and a life-or-death comedy lesson to show just how far we’ll go for a laugh, and along the way celebrates some of the most iconic moments and schticks of classic comedy.
General Admission seating. Bring your own chairs. No Intermission.

“It’s been a blast directing this play and I look forward to seeing you all this summer!” – Carey Nicholson
