Old MacDonald Had A Brunch

In Youngblood brunch history, we have done many foolhardy, some would say dumb, things. There was the nudity brunch (we called it NAKED BRUNCH!), the pirate brunch (CAP'N BRUNCH, anyone?), and the time we did a political brunch in a swing state (COLUMBRUNCH, OHIO! See what we did there?). All in the name of breakfast-based theatre art.

Nothing will ever be as dumb as what we do this Sunday. We give you the

Live Animal Brunch.

Featuring new plays by Clare Barron, Patrick Link, Eric March, Willie Orbison and Abby Rosebrock.

Five brand new short plays, each one featuring a real live animal.  Will they behave?  Can the actors avoid being critically upstaged?  Is a short play that depends on a live animal even dramaturgically feasible? 


Pancakes and bacon start at 12:30

New plays start at 1pm
