DESCRIPTION:
Funhouse is quarterly late-night play anthology inspired by “The Twilight Zone”, “Black Mirror”, “Mr. Show”, “Saturday Night Live,” and Adult Swim. Funhouse is a collection of subversive and experimental original content. Our show serves as a rotating platform for up-and-coming playwrights, directors, actors, and designers with ties to the Pacific Northwest. The creators of Funhouse want artists to take bold risks in their storytelling.

Funhouse was created by Brian Toews. The first show was co-produced and directed by Anna Ly, Brian Toews, and Chris Quilici. It received its premiere at Eclectic Theater in Seattle, WA June 2017 to a sold-out run.
