Casey is an Elvis impersonator with everything going for him, including a flashy sequin jumpsuit. But just like that he loses his gig, rent is overdue and his wife announces a baby on the way. So, when Elvis leaves the building and a drag show moves in, “The King” transforms into an all-out queen with the help of some new friends who become the second family Casey never saw coming.

With snappy zingers and dance-worthy numbers, this wildly entertaining story will challenge your assumptions with extraordinary humor and depth.

From a farming community in rural Oregon to the big cities of Los Angeles and New York, this thoughtful one-man play excavates the playwright's own complicated relationship to gun culture.

While proponents on both sides talk past each other, making it seem like there is no one with conflicting feelings on the subject, The Gun Show explores the many nuanced considerations in that narrative dominated by political sound bytes and simple solutions.

Appetizers at The Foundry Table & Tap before the show.
