FUBAR

A world premiere by Karl Gajdusek (Showtime’s DEAD LIKE ME)
Directed by Larissa Kokernot

Produced as a part of the America’s Off Broadway Festival at 59E59 Theaters

San Francisco in the late 90’s: the Internet, new tailored drugs, raves, and bikram yoga. When all the freedom and fun come up against a random act of violence, things become totally FUBAR.

Mary and David live in a small apartment crammed full of the boxes her abused mother left behind, while outside in the streets of San Francisco people self-actualize like crazy. When Mary herself is the victim of a random act of violence, their protected world is ripped open. Meanwhile, Richard is a benevolent drug dealer writing a book while Sylvia uses the internet to lead a double hyper-sexualized existence.

FUBAR: The amazing, interesting, fantastic, incredible story of five really F***ed up people.

“the production pulses like an all-night Ecstasy-fueled rave” 
-The New York Times

“See FUBAR if you want to experience theatrical shock and awe. So smart, entertaining, stylish, and surprising is Karl Gajdusek’s play that it risks looking too slick and hip in any description. Before that description, then, you should know that it’s a fresh and compelling story with sharp, smart dialogue, built on deep and powerful themes, acted truthfully and creatively.”
-Backstage, NYC
