Apathy is a unique theatrical experience. It combines traditional dramatic elements with more experimental, avant grade type performance art elements for a truly immersive hour and half or theatre. ... full review

Apathy Killed The Cat dealt with some issues that many people don't talk about often and I think it handled it well. The use of the dream sequence in the show really showed you the issues that the main character was struggling with. Overall, it was an enjoyable watch and a little refreshing on the storytelling topics. A real must see of a play.... full review

Apathy Killed the Cat is a one-act play written and directed by Ryan Lisman and premiering at the 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival.

Colin is slowly losing his grip on what little control he has over his life as his mom is lying catatonic in the hospital and his treasured cat Rosebud is on her last life. While he has a loving and devoted girlfriend Lily (Autumn Bruewer), he is tortured by a secret sexual desire that no one, himself included, can understand.... full review

Looking for some challenging adult content at this year’s Fringe? This might be the show for you.

Weirdly balancing fantasy, comedy, heavy drama and some truly awkward family dynamics along the way, this piece is a call for people to simply respect one another and try to understand each other without irrational judgement. The is one of the most positive shows I have seen so far at Fringe, even if that positive message is hidden amongst some very dark ideas. (It should be noted this show contains some very adult conversations and nudity.)... full review
