Ensemble LAB LAUGHS (1000 x 695 px).png

Each year LAB solicits comedic shorts from across the globe. This year, over ninety plays were submitted and only seven have made it to our stage. The evening will begin at BITTER GROUNDS, a simple little coffee shop that doesn’t cater to bougie drinks but rather serves coffee perfect for your personal crappy mood. Two couples gather to play “BRIDGE” but very quickly it isn’t about cards but rather a hilarious misunderstanding of “playing” together. Dating is hard enough these days, and there is an app for everyone, imagine if the beloved Wordle became a dating app, they would have to call it FLIRTLE. In FULL FRONTAL TRANSPARENCY, two young people, tired of the dating scene, seek to find a quicker way of getting to know each other by getting all the nasty “secrets” out of the way upfront; what could go wrong? Ever wonder if there was a quicker way at the end? HEAVEN CAN’T WAIT, has the answer for you, and you’ll get the service you deserve. We end the night cuddling up to two old familiar friends or are they. In SNOW WHITE WHO? Prince Charming comes home to tell the King of his luck in finding the perfect future Princess, but dear old dad has questions, a lot of questions. And to end the night, we take a look back at the big bad wolf. Ever wonder what he was like as a child? THE ORIGIN OF ZEKE WOLF explores that question as his parents attend a teacher’s conference to discuss Zeke’s recent behavior. Eight actors, two directors and an overabundance of hilarity. Join us for LAB Laughs 2024.
