This event has passed.

A collaboration between The Accidental Mechanics Group and Workshirt Opera! 
Presented by the Bus Stop Theatre Cooperative. 

Michael Lake and Stewart Legere react to the year through three short performances, a surprise to everyone (including the performers). YHTPRTPOYNBIAB is an experiment in connection, risk, trust, and an expression of wild abandon. 

Here’s the situation:

Michael and Stewart will create the performances using a set of objects and a set of rules.

The objects are: a piano, a cake, a skirt, a ladder, a bottle of wine, a hammer, five microphones, and twenty balls of yarn. 

The rules are: there must be a magic trick, a dance, an explosion, a reunion, an accident, a song, fake words, and a genuine apology for a specific thing you did to a specific person. 

PART ONE: Michael performs a piece by Stewart, without prior knowledge of the content. 

PART TWO: Stewart performs a piece by Michael, without prior knowledge of the content. 

PART THREE: Special guests perform a piece by Michael and Stewart, without prior knowledge of the content.
