& OTHER CIRCUS ACTS

3W, 1M

 

When a plane crashes on approach to LaGuardia,

a struggling personal injury law firm scrambles

to get the case of a lifetime.  WRONGFUL DEATH

Capitalism, and the way we value human life.

REVIEWS:

 

 

"Miamian Chris Demos-Brown’s cynical legal comedy, written with the topical relevance

and the rapier wit of an Aaron Sorkin script, received a sparkling world-premiere

production from Zoetic, including an actual three-ring circus, acrobatic interludes and

wry audience interaction. Arguably the year’s funniest show was also its best."

 

                                                                                         BOCA MAGAZINE - John Thomason

"Demos-Brown, a rising theatrical star..., has drawn on his experience

as a lawyer working on wrongful death cases to create a savage

examination of the monetization of pain, suffering, and the loss of life...

Soaring as an artist, finding the ideal creative home at the company

he helped create, Demos-Brown has written yet another

fascinating play that deserves a very long life."

 

MIAMI HERALD - Christine Dolen

“If the overall effect is that of that steamroller flattening any

pretense of nobility, the moment-to-moment feel is an incisive

scalpel-like dissection of human cupidity and one of the first

don’t miss shows of the new year.”
