The Funhouse Family produces subversive and experimental original content characterized by a multi-genre format that reaches beyond traditional theatrical norms. Each live show is comprised of a series of short plays that, when viewed together, give audiences an experience similar to that of walking through a funhouse. As soon as you think you know whats coming next, the room starts spinning and the floor falls out from under you. The shows serve as a rotating platform for diverse up-and-coming playwrights, directors, actors, and designers.
