Happenstance Theater will perform its first post-Covid production BrouHaHa in a two-week limited engagement at the Baltimore Theater Project from October 28 through November 7.
Described as a post-apocalyptic comedy, BrouHaHa is a comedic, existential escapade inspired by images of refugees fleeing on foot, Edwardian workers, cinematic treasures like Fellini’s La Strada and Bergman’s The Seventh Seal, and the dark comedy of Samuel Beckett. In this devised, clown-esque piece, Happenstance Theater’s troupe of eccentrics walks the precipice at the end of the world. Their play lights up the darkness like a firecracker. This timely show appeals to audiences of any age.
BrouHaHa runs 70 minutes with no intermission. The ensemble cast features Gwen Grastorf, Mark Jaster, Sabrina Mandell, Sarah Olmsted Thomas, and Alex Vernon.
BrouHaHa has been performed at the International Festival of Arts & Ideas, Staunton Music Festival, Celebration Barn, NextNOW Festival at Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, Baltimore Theatre Project, NY Clown Theatre Festival in Brooklyn, Capital Fringe Festival, Reston CenterStage and St. Mary’s College. It was developed with a grant from the Morgan Fund and by support from the Share fund.

About Happenstance Theater: Happenstance is a professional company committed to devising, producing and touring original, performer-created visual, poetic Theatre. Our
ensemble is made up of multi-talented performers who craft all aspects of our work
from concept to realization. We harvest imagery from the past and re-contextualize it in
works that address eternal themes of life and death. With the simplest means – humor,
music, silence, text and beauty – we seek to elevate the moment when the performers
and audience meet, to lift the encounter beyond the daily and pedestrian into the
realms of dreams, poetry, and art. Meaning is often found by happenstance. In 2016 Happenstance received three Helen Hayes Awards for Outstanding Ensemble,
Outstanding Costume Design and Outstanding Lead Actor. In 2017 Happenstance
received two Helen Hayes Awards for Outstanding Costume Design and Outstanding
