Our mission is to bring comedy to the Hampshire Community through our unique brand of absurdist spontaneous theater. We strive to make people laugh by continuously and unabashedly mocking ourselves and the world we live in. We seek to offer an alternative theater-going experience, in which the fourth wall is torn down, and the audience directly influences and interacts with the actors.
