4th Annual “Fool For All”:
•Play-in-a-Day•
Tales of Honor and Anchovies


Gallaudet University's
Elstad Auditorium

June 1st @ 8pm
FREE ADMISSION

Theatre made in a pressure cooker...

Tales of Honor and Anchovies will consist of four new plays created from scratch in a single day! For three years the “Fool for All” has been a mainstay of the Capital Fringe Festival, starting with the hit Tales of Love and Sausages, followed by Tales of Courage and Poultry, and last year's Tales of Marriage and Mozzarella, a production known for including a real live wedding. Critics have called the “Fool for All”, “witty and intelligent,” praised its “awesome feats of physical comedy,” and declared it “thoroughly enjoyable and light-hearted.” This DC favorite returns for a one-day only free performance on June 1st. Admission is free, and donations will be accepted to benefit Faction of Fools’ 5th Season.

Actors skilled in Commedia dell’Arte will arrive at 10am to create four new plays packed with masks, acrobatics, physical comedy, honor, and anchovies. When the curtain goes up at 8pm, there is no fourth wall, no script, no set, and no boundaries! Like the leading Commedia companies of 16th century Italy, the actors have only their masks, their training, and the audience’s reactions. Live, immediate, and surprising, the 4th Annual “Fool for All” is a spectacle for the whole family!
