Hunter Gatherers

by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb

directed by Mike Brooks

October 14 – 22, 2011
Victor Jory Theatre
at Actors Theatre of Louisville

The human race has made some headway over the last 50,000 years or so. We’ve got these cute shoes, these awesome phones, mortgages, thumbs — but have we really come so far? Anyone who’s ever sat on a hot piece of broken-down public transportation, hit the mall on Christmas Eve or seen a singles bar between last call and closing will tell you that underneath our cosmopolitan veneer, our brand names and bachelor’s degrees, lies the heart of something wild. Something savage.

From the creator of boom and BOB comes a comedy that’s earned opposable thumbs up from critics and audiences across the country. Join us as four friends come together to celebrate their shared wedding anniversary with a little dinner, a few laughs, some wine, and a shocking, hilarious, sexy, possibly occasionally violent but definitely unforgettable journey into the human heart — nasty, brutish thing that it is.

Help Make it Happen

Being scrappy and innovative only gets us so far. It costs money to rent performance space, build scenery, and purchase advertising. And we believe in fair compensation for our artists and partners, so we can’t pay for everything through ticket sales alone. Can you help us with one of these important items?

  • $3.50 buys one wooden 2x4
  • $30 covers printing programs for one night
  • $100 keeps our website online for a year
  • $250 buys costumes for one show
