Missed Connections

Performance Dates

Mystery. Mistaken identities. Clandestine meetings…and missings.

Performed outdoors and completely devised and written by the cast, Missed Connections features your favorite Commedia dell'Arte archetypes as they are in 2022. Each character arrives to the scene expecting to meet someone or something, but comedic chaos ensues resulting in missed (and newly discovered!) connections.

At its root, Commedia dell'Arte showcases the prowess and ingenuity of each actor and their spirit of collaboration and play. Featuring new masks designed and created by Tara Cariaso of Waxing Moon Masks, Faction of Fools leans into the here and now of Commedia dell'Arte. By creating masks and characters of our contemporary culture, Faction honors the tradition of Commedia dell'Arte: poking fun at current society, celebrating the triumph of the powerless, and featuring the artist-creator.

Bring your lawn chairs, picnic blankets, and outdoor theatre goodies! Missed Connections premieres Saturday, April 30th and runs through Sunday, May 15th with performances on Saturdays and Sundays at 1pm & 5pm. Appropriate for all ages. Tickets $15-$35.
