The struggle for human connection is universal — and nowhere is the humor, frustration and terror of other people more on display than Craigslist, the ultimate Want Ad of the internet. …We’re using puppets, punches, ukeleles and a bedazzled loin cloth to create a night that ranges from the hysterical to the tragic to the just plain weird. Looking to hire a Dragon Slayer? Need to unload a sturdy wood dresser possessed by the demonic spirit of your ex? Woke up to a naked stranger in your bed and want to make that Missed Connection? You must be on Craiglsist — and so are we. Weith text taken directly from actual Craigslist ads, the internet comes to life in this original show created and performed by Flying V.
