NPACF Presents: Poor Again...Dagnabbit!
A Patrick McManus Comedy
Saturday, October 18
7:30 PM
Northshore Performing Arts Center on the Bothell High Campus
NPAC McManus
Nationally renowned humor writer Patrick F. McManus has done it again....become poor! And this time he's written a new play about it for his even poorer and indentured actor, Tim Behrens. "The worldwide recession continues to increase the spread of laughlessness across the land," says Behrens, "and we aim to do our part to combat this situation." Both author and actor guarantee laughs as they describe Pat's childhood of poverty, his confrontations with wolves at the door, his inspired descriptions of the Great Depression's impacts on everything from cars to maggot farming, from school assignments to dating. Discover how to make, and inventively present, poverty foods like blood sausage, head cheese and turkey gravy.
