Above the Bitter Café

FARCE. Mrs. Ananias and her drama students have arrived in New York City on a much anticipated fieldtrip, but it doesn’t take long before there’s more drama than they can take! When the group encounters a struggling-actor-turned-tour-guide with no sense of direction, a Coca-Cola addicted assistant superintendent, an FBI agent masquerading as a home-schooler, a missing pig, a couple of dimwitted thieves, and some angry scalped Muppets, things get a little weird to say the least. This farce will have your audience roaring with laughter!
