May 26 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until June 9, 2022
Loser thrusts audience members into the basement bedroom of Lee, a recent suicide victim. Lee’s cousin, in one final act before leaving town for good, rummages through a trove of embarrassing nerdom ephemera as he searches for meaning in Lee’s death. Ultimately, Loser confronts the impolite and the uncomfortable in a battle to squash existential angst and answer once and for all: “who is the real loser?”
This show marks Ceaseless Fun’s first production in over 2 years, and their first since Everyone Agrees it’s about to Explode was prematurely closed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Loser was originally devised and written during quarantine by artistic director Derek Spencer and company member Soren Royer-McHugh.
Loser runs at Art Share LA from May 21 to June 12, 2022.
Trigger warning for gun violence, dark spaces, bullying, and suicide/self-harm.
