STINKERS

 

Two adorable kids? Check. One stay-at-home dad? Check. One felonious GRAMMA? Check.

The much-loved writer/director team from our 2017 hit Lone Star Spirits, Josh Tobiessen and Sarah Rasmussen, reunite for a new show that brilliantly captures the humor, humanity and complexity of parenting. Sally Wingert returns to the Jungle after almost 15 years, joined by an all-star cast of John Catron, Megan Burns, Michael Curran-Dorsano, George Keller, and Reed Sigmund.

This is a play about how the same people who push us to the brink of insanity can be the ones who reel us back in. It’s for anyone who’s ever traded someone all the ice cream they can eat for five minutes of silence, received career advice from a three-year-old, or, after singing “Baa Baa Black Sheep” for 27 minutes, used a toy helicopter to open a beer.
