Event Series Event Series: The Great Gorbolski

The Great Gorbolski

March 1 @ 5:30 pm - 6:25 pm


A solo seven character clown odyssey. The Great Garbolski puts on the family show he always dreamed of. Get to know the eccentric Garbolskis! See Uncle Tibi wrestle the Sitsquatch. Find out what Gisela has in her giant bag. Try to avoid stepdad Jimmy E. Honkenstern as he wanders the theater working security. The Garbolskis will make you laugh, cry, & eat a pickle. An absurd exploration of family, intergenerational trauma, dictators, and what it means to be American.
“A slyly subversive dose of what it means to be American”…”Hays’ nonsense calls our everyday world into question, hilariously.” — Kim Waldron, Theatrica

“The Great Gorbolski is hilarious! You’ll hear beautiful music on a fiddle, fall in love with different characters, and get to dance at the very end. I highly recommend seeing this show.”
–Audience Review from the SF Fringe.

“This is a super wacky show that keeps getting more and more funny as it goes along. You will not know what’s coming next! A very enjoyable experience from a talented performer.”
–Audience Review from the SF Fringe.
