Reality television might as well be the new theatre, right?

Two artists are subjected to a normal yet abnormal situation. What they think is an audition is a reality television show purely focused on the ratings. These characters all struggle with their own understanding of art and where their own opinions reside. The fate of spring is in their hands, it will take a brave soul to fight for its survival. One may rise to earth or fall into the trap of Hades. A twisted reality sure to change your perspective, but of course that's your prerogative.

The characters and theme of the show may be serious and contemplative, but within the play are many microcosmic social messages in the script, awkward personalities and the sheer fun of people cutting their own clothes off!




Pear of Artists is a troupe that resides in the land of ye old School for Creative Performing Arts. We ride around on our trusty steeds across the Central Parkway mote to go to our theater classes, where we learn combat of the stage and projection of the voice. Our apprenticeships, despite high demand for blacksmiths will be in theater.

One Comment:

  1. We're looking very much forward to performing alongside Pear of Artist's at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival´╗┐! FringeNext is such a cool idea that I am so happy to support! And the idea of throwing two characters into a situation that they don't realize is a reality TV show is very clever and timely! Can't wait to see the performance! Best wishes!
