The Play About The Coach was first developed in 2007. That year, it enjoyed workshop performances at the People’s Improv Theatre (PIT) and the Tank in NYC. In the fall of ’08, The Coach was a part of the Philadelphia Fringe Festival playing in the historic museum district at The Black Lodge Theatre. The Coach then was commissioned by the Watertower Theatre in Addison, Texas to be a part of their Out of the Loop Festival in ’09. Following our run in Addison we were awarded with the Top Touring Production for the 08/09 season by the Dallas Ft Worth Critics Association. This past summer, The Coach played to rave reviews at the Capital Fringe in Washington DC. Beginning on February 27th, 2013 The Coach will enjoy its New York premiere at the 4th Street Theatre.

“Watching actor/playwright Paden Fallis perform this mini theatrical tornado is akin to watching a train wreck, but in a good way — a desperate, funny, sweaty, can’t-look-away train wreck.”
-Washington Post

“A surrealistic nightmare of Kafka-esque proportions.”
-Washington City Paper

“The Play about The Coach is about more than just a game, and you don’t have to be a sports fan to get swept up in the action.”
-Theatre Jones

Dark at the End of the Tunnel

Filed under: Solo Shows — admin @ 4:15 pm  

Dark at the End of the Tunnel enacts the story of a blind man who wakes up on a bridge and fears he might have beaten a man to death the night before.  Searching for answers, he relives his magical childhood, his journey from sighted to blind, his relationship with the woman he loves and his fascination with the legacy of General Curtis LeMay.  Fearing he has lost sight of everything that is important, will he come face to face with the violence he committed?

Working hand-in-hand with Visions, an advocacy group for the blind in New York, we plunge the audience into the world of the visually impaired. Director Chuck Hudson re-shapes the spoken word with essential actions to make the invisible visible, allowing the audience to confront what the character does not. Actor and Playwright Paden Fallis explores the worlds of actual and figurative blindness, highlighting the often humorous absurdities of life in order to illustrate the downfall of the modern American man.

Dark at the End of the Tunnel was developed in residency with The Field in New York early 2010. It received a premiere performance at The Kitchen in March and then enjoyed a preview run at The Tank in May.
