PAST PROJECTS:

Much Ado About Lebwoski

PERFORMED Summer 2010 and 2011

The Primitive Screwheads presented two sold out summers of Much Ado About Lebowski, a live staged parody about a man named Sir Geoffery of Lebowski, who lived a simple, humble life until the day he was mistaken for Geoffery of Lebrowski. On that day, one manís quiet life turns into utter chaos full of kidnappings, escaped prisoners, rug peeing, theatrical porn, and a severed toe. The Primitive Screwheads presented a wildly unique Comedy of Errors that was a mishmash of an old Elizabethan text and the Cohen Brothersí Big Lebowski and Raising Arizona that featured live minstrels playing classic songs, a dancing greek chorus, bowling balls, and of course, rug peeing.

Brain-Dead Alive!

PERFORMED October 2009

The Primitive Screwheads brought their latest play, Brain-Dead Alive, to San Francisco just in time for Halloween as a 1940's style radio drama parody of Peter Jackson's cult zombie movie. There was no shortage of audience participation as gallons of fake blood were sprayed on the guests as part of the show. And better yet, the Bay Area's most kick-ass bands came and played prior to the show each night. Rockin' Bands and BLOOD!

The Chainsaw Massacres

PERFORMED JUNE 2006

The Chainsaw Massacres is a live theatrical parody that draws inspiration from both actual historical events of the late seventies as well as from classic horror movies such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The story follows five teenagers celebrating their last night together before college begins. When their car breaks down in the middle of the nowhere at the dead of night, they encounter a man who leads them down the road to one of the most terrifying experiences anyone’s darkest imagination could ever envision. Starring The Primitive Screwheads Theater Company, The Chainsaw Massacres is an original play filled with loud chainsaws, chaotic screaming, and multiple dismemberments that all lead to an extraordinary amount of spraying blood and belly laughs.
