Encore! Two Months In

Fresh off a successful run at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro, we're taking the show on the road all the way to Raleigh! Come join us for one last chance (we're serious this time) to see this show.


2016 nearly killed us (and did kill David Bowie, Prince and Carrie Fisher). What happens two months into the new administrations when a Tweeter-in-Chief has taken office, the NC General Assembly has the gloves off and we have a Beauty and the Beast without Angela Lansbury? These sketch comedians have a few ideas. Two Months In, takes stock of the moment and gives you a reason to laugh again. Expect appearances from: the NC General Assembly, your family, and some Ghostbusters caught between their jobs and their ethics. It’s the best and worst of a political season that will only end when the blessed apocalypse claims us all.
