“This man’s name was Tim. Tim crossed me. Now Tim is acrossed your plates.”

Fresh from the success of their farcical dark comedy “The Bakery”, The Bardic Bastards return to the Hollywood Fringe Festival with a midnight tale of murderous malarkey. The Midnight Menagerie, a new one-act by Brandon Nicholas Pfeltz, is a twistedly funny take on the rotten decisions of the deplorable delinquents that haunt the screens of Hollywood.

On the eve of his first film’s release, a scorned Mafioso-boss-turned-screenwriter invites the band of bastards responsible for his misery to a midnight dinner complete with a full course of bloody revenge.

Attendees may leave bloodstained. Parental discretion advised. One free glass of wine will be served upon arrival.
