Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 21, 2008
Molotov Theatre Group, America's second-oldest Grand Guignol theatre, will unleash its latest disturbing comedy, "The Sticking Place," on unsuspecting victims during the Capital Fringe Festival, in six performances from July 10 to July 26 at the Fringe Festival Home. Molotov won recognition as "Best Comedy" in the 2007 Capital Fringe Festival for its debut original production, "For Boston."
Billed as a cross between "The Scottish Play" and "American Psycho", "The Sticking Place" will be hosted at The Shop in the Capital Fringe Festival Home, 607 New York Ave., NW, Washington, DC 20001. Performance dates and times are as follows:
Thursday, July 10, 8PM
Saturday, July 12, 9 PM
Sunday, July 13, 6:30 PM
Saturday, July 19, 8 PM
Thursday, July 24, 8 PM
Saturday, July 26, 3 PM
Tickets will be available at the Fringe Home venue, or through the Fringe web site: http://www.capfringe.org.
" 'The Sticking Place' tells the story of young adults getting sucked into the seedy underbelly of sexual bloodplay right here in stodgy old Washington, DC," according to Lucas Maloney, Molotov's Producing Artistic Director. Maloney co-wrote the script with Michael McMahon - the same team that authored "For Boston" for the 2007 Capital Fringe. On stage, "The Sticking Place" is brought to creepy life by the acting talents of Laura Bloechl, Praem Phulwani, Pamela Sabella, and Karthik Srinivasan.
Maloney said, ""The Sticking Place' has all the elements of a great Molotov comedy: Lust, jealousy, violence, revenge, gore, sexual ambiguity, and blood. It's about as far over the line as you can get. This one gets under your skin - literally. In fact, if "The Sticking Place" doesn't offend you, it's not because we didn't try."
"Did I mention blood?" Maloney said. "Because there will be blood. Oh, yes, there will be blood."
Later this year, Molotov will present its second full-length theatre event, "Closet Land," at the Playbill Café, 1409 14th Street, NW, Washington, DC.
About Molotov Theatre Group
Founded in 2007, The Molotov Theatre Group is dedicated to preserving and exploring the aesthetic of the Grand Guignol, or French Theater of Horror. The Group will strive to accomplish this in two ways:
1) Through its ongoing project, "Grand Guignol DC," to produce English translations of original Grand Guignol scripts to preserve and draw attention to this important, and essentially forgotten genre; and
2) To apply ideal from the Grand Guignol to contemporary and classic works.
The Molotov Theater Group will pursue these goals following the Grand Guignol models of employing a resident company of artists and working towards building a true rotating repertoire of plays. To our knowledge, no other company in the world is working to maintain this genre in such a traditional way.
