THE AGE OF CYNICISM
–OR– KARAOKE NIGHT AT THE HOG

OVERVIEW
Can a person be both a cynic and a romantic at the same time? Only in America…

Gary Loves Debbie, who's married to Don, who's sleeping with Ellen, who's just been fixed up with Gary. Come celebrate the fall of Western Civilization with these four mismatched 29-year-olds. When the cynicism gets too heady, they cut loose at Karaoke Night at The Hog: the only place in town you're hauled up on stage to sing your heart out…then applauded for how well you fake it!


QUOTES, AWARDS & REVIEWS
• JEFF RECOMMENDED

“This over-the-top comedy by award-winning author Keith Huff offers audience-participation karaoke (voluntary), archly literate dialogue and a sharp edge that slashes at trust and fidelity in marriage and friendship. Intentionally artificial, The Age of Cynicism is theater at ‘play’…Director Ann Filmer plays up the artifice with staging somewhere between sitcom gone ballistic and burlesque Edward Albee.”Jonathan Abarbanel, Windy City Times
