No Matter Watt - The Musical!

gordon stephen matheson jr · Ages 16+ · United States of America

world premiere

NO MATTER WATT has now completed its sold out Hollywood Fringe Festival run. You may view the archived show online for free at your convenience here:

The liquor is gone. The drugs are gone. The girls are gone. And the money soon enough will be.

Lonely in his drab apartment, Posco Hamwhich squints at a naked light bulb dangling from above, his sole source of illumination. Suffocating, searching for who knows what, he pilots his liability of a car to a bar, and the chase is on to score one more hit, one more drink, one more shot to get it right. After striking out on every level, Posco finds himself barely seated on a bar stool next to a weird hip-hop wannabe named Bumdinger. He’s clearly mistaken Posco for some savant savior who has a clue, when from out of the blue he asks him “What is your message?” Confused, speechless, Posco hits the road. But where does that road lead, and why should we care anyway about this lovable loser who’s been resisting any form of redemption with every step?
