     For the second production in our 2011-2012 Season of Plays, Subversive Theatre proudly unveils the world-premiere of the mind-bending surreal comedy GREENSPAN AND THE TRILOBITES by local mind-bending wordsmith Michael Fanelli*.

     Economic collapse, evolutionary decay, abduction, and antique appraisals – all part of the fun in this brand new absurdist adventure by Subversive Theatre’s own idiosyncratic artist Michael Fanelli*.  Brimming with biting sarcasm and gleefully perplexing twists of the laws of the known Universe, GREENSPAN AND THE TRILOBITES offers a high-energy romp through the foreclosure crisis, human-caused mass extinction, and the eternal search for true worth with your “fracted” hosts, Hun and Hunny.

     This inventive gadfly-esque comedy mounts a clever assault on our modern world order of exploitation, class privilege, and short-sighted profiteering with all the bluster, irreverence, and agitation mayhem you’ve come to expect from Subversive Theatre.

     Our production of GREENSPAN AND THE TRILOBITES is directed by Tilke Hill who also stars in the show opposite Verniece Turner+, Greg Howze, Darryl Hart, and Dave Burger.  Set Design is by Dyan Burlingame* with Lighting Design by Patrick Medlock-Turek, Costume Design by Caitlin McLeod, Sound Design by John Shotwell*, and Props by Brigid Hannon.

     GREENSPAN AND THE TRILOBITES runs October 27 – November 19 with performances Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8pm.  All shows are at Subversive Theatre’s regular performance venue, The Manny Fried Playhouse at 255 Great Arrow Avenue on the third floor of North Buffalo’s Great Arrow Building.  Tickets are $20 General Admission of $15 for students, seniors, and Subversive Theatre members.  Admission for all Thursday performances (except Opening Night) is pay-what-you-can.
