Running of the aaah! comedy about how to sabotage the running of the bulls

RUNNING OF THE AAAH! COMEDY ABOUT HOW TO SABOTAGE THE RUNNING OF THE BALLS

Every year, the famed festival of San Fermín in Pamplona, Spain culminates in the running of the bulls, and every year, hundreds of animal rights activists show up to boycott the event out of protest. Running of the—AAAH!, a new bovine comedy by Mark Aloysius Kenneally, tells a fictional alternate history of the week leading up to the first American version of the event and the catastrophic chaos that ensues when one of the most vocal opponents turns out to actually be one of the bulls slated to run.

It’s a fact that the average human is cleverer than the average bovine; hence the existence of Steak Tartare. But just once in while, a group of exceptional bovines come out of the paddock. And saves the day. The bulls are revolting, the humans are scheming – but who will get the last moo in this comedy about how to sabotage the running of the bulls?

FISHWRAP – TWO ACT COMEDY PLAY ABOUT A NEWSPAPER

“Fishwrap” hilariously details the challenges newspapers face in the online age. While management tries to keep the Independent afloat financially, the news staff is reporting on a major story sure to ruffle feathers. They’re also being sued by a local man, who swears they’re in cahoots with law enforcement to bring him down. On top of that, the inconvenient omission of the letter ‘L’ in a local store ad for grandfather clocks makes the staff at the local newspaper convinced that they’re in for a brilliant day. And things can only get better!

It was produced in September by Artists for the Al at the Al Ringling Theatre in Baraboo, attracting more than 1,500 spectators for six shows and raising $16,000 for restoration of the theatre.
