The Last Croissant

ensemble theatre · the attic collective · Ages 13+ · United States of America

The Attic Collective proudly returns to the Hollywood Fringe Festival to present “The Last Croissant”. Formerly 2:20 Productions, The Attic Collective won the Encore Producer’s Award with their sold-out production of “Dead Dog’s Bone: A Birthday Play” at the 2015 Fringe Festival. Written by Award-Winning Playwright Veronica Tjioe, “The Last Croissant” is a one-act farce that replaces the rooms and doors of a traditional farce with the great outdoors. The play’s action is set in a crowded single campsite that, due to a miscommunication, is being shared by three very different groups of campers.

Imogen and Frederick have come to this national park on their 24th anniversary in a desperate attempt to rekindle their passion. Frederick, who is played by a femme-identifying actor, is looking forward to the perfect anniversary: hiking the park’s trails, wading in the lake, and, most importantly, tracking the whereabouts of a particular bird: the Dickinson Blue-Breasted Warbler. But for Imogen, who is played by a masc-identifying actor, the woods are an entirely undesirable and ultimately unromantic place to spend an anniversary. In the very same campsite, October has arrived for a family campout to find that no one else in her family has shown up. Rather than go home, she decides to use this time to tackle the personal demons she has been running from. Meanwhile, a pair of camp hosts, Mumbo & Jumbo, are working with Ranger Dave to find the party responsible for a string of apparent campsite robberies. A true ensemble play, The Last Croissant employs magical realism, clowning, and whimsy to tell the story of nine crowded campers who hope to find what they’re looking for in the woods.
