2017 Season Phib Extra

Written by award-winning Iranian playwright, Nassim Soleimanpour, it has been called a play, but it’s a lively, global sensation that no one is allowed to talk about. The actor—a different performer each night—has never seen the play and is told not to look up anything about the play. This ‘theater entertainment meets social experiment’ is unlike anything, and it will make you question everything.

“Mr. Soleimanpour’s elliptical play keeps taking odd, unexpected turns that often lead us back to the relief of laughter.”  — The New York Times

Featuring Hollywood actors Xander Berkeley (The Walking Dead) and Sarah Clarke (24Twilight). Also featured are Fort Worth celebrities Christopher Blay (artist/curator), Cameron Smith (musician/producer), and Christie Vela (stage actress).

A WORLD PREMIERE

Clem and Tom, a young couple with financial struggles, break into Tom’s employer—a payday loan company called Debt Duck—to clean out the safe. When his gambling-addicted boss arrives with the same idea, they're drawn into a strange scenario involving a gang of Estonians, a self-interested supervisor with a large mortgage, and an overly sentient alarm system. The Trap, by the same playwright of Crossing the Line, is a new play about debt, employee theft, and the difficulties of being a good person in a capitalist society.
