The Tragedy: A Comedy

Pico Playhouse
10508 W. Pico Blvd Los Angeles

After a near sold-out run in late 2017 with several standing-room-only performances, Ammunition Theatre will be remounting THE TRAGEDY - a wholly immersive theatrical experience, centering around three literary/talent managers - Larry (Malcolm Barrett, Timeless), Lisa (Tina Huang, Rizzoli & Isles), and Derek (Brandon Scott, Guerrilla), who go on a psychedelic mushroom trip, hoping they'll be struck with a brilliant idea that will save their failing business. Instead, the mushrooms reveal a chilling truth: their whole lives are the subject of a tragic play, with an audience of people watching their every move. As Larry slips deeper and deeper into his role as the tragic hero, Lisa and Derek undertake a mad quest to escape the confines of the play and save their friend. Greek goddesses, self-help cults, and inter-dimensional portals all set the stage for this interactive dark comedy about characters trapped inside a tragedy.

Broadway World - Somewhat Recommended

"...Perhaps the Ammunition Theatre Company has a built-in audience of millennials who enjoy their brand of silly and senseless humor in THE TRAGEDY: A COMEDY written by D.G. Watson and directed by Ahmed Best. Currently promoted as being "back by popular demand," all I can figure out is since marijuana is now legal, the younger audience members went out and got the best varieties and smoked a lot of it before seeing this show, then really enjoyed laughing at all the silly situations and dialogue, performed to the best of their ability by actors who enjoyed engaging the audience to play along with them."

"...Director Ahmed Best has assembled the forces of this outstanding company and tuned up the comedy with delightful results no mean feat for a one-off, monthly performance."
