Uncle’s Regularly Scheduled Garage Party is CANCELLED Tonight
Thursday June 1, 2017 to Sunday July 2, 2017 A World Premiere by Lee Cataluna
Directed by Harry Wong III
Uncle's regularly scheduled garage party is cancelled for the first time in -- ever! The usual attendees show up and process their shock over the cancellation-- while they eat, drink, talk story and play music. Uncle isn't saying why the party is cancelled, but everyone has a theory: Illness? Financial troubles? Marital discord? Gambling problem? Eviction? Erosion of societal values and loss of culture? Or is Aunty just sick and tired of all their shenanigans?
