What do you do after your dad drops dead at Thanksgiving dinner? In this world premiere dramedy, the creator of the Encore Award-winning A HORSE WITH A VIEW flounders through his four stages of grief: Sleep, Research, Baking, and Cardio. After learning way too much about cremation and mastering the world’s most difficult cookie, he faces his ultimate fear: learning to swim.

​SINK OR SWIM ​is the ​third ​production of Dessert Theater Inc., a company dedicated to pairing new plays with homemade cookies, cakes, and candies, so every audience member will get​ a selection of treats prepared by Piehler himself.

A show beyond this reality? A one-man cabaret about never, EVER fitting in. Told through four days in the 90's. Described as, "Reinventing the form," "amateur," "musically outstanding," "a waste of time," "earnest, heartbreaking, & real."


Carl Kozlowski fell asleep at the wheel of his car, made Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank think he died mid-interview and had to race an LA bus at 90 mph. Now he's ready to share his craziest narcoleptic misadventures with you. Strap in!
