SHOPWORN tells the story of estranged brothers who reunite at their mother’s funeral and inherit her antique shop — which is packed with offensive inventory. Spurred on by the shop’s clerk and the younger brother’s girlfriend, the siblings battle to reconcile their identities against the underbelly of their inheritance — a task complicated by an unwelcome visitor from the family’s past. ONLY TWO SHOWS LEFT JULY 26 & 28!!

Praise for SHOPWORN

DC Metro Theater Arts: SHOPWORN is “punch-line funny and pretty darn woke” and its “appealing characters, terrific performances, and ample laughs make it an excellent and entertaining buy.”

DCist: SHOPWORN’s “tense, strange, and intriguing narrative [is] pretty entertaining.”

Broadway World DC: “Finding a young production with tons of potential is always thrilling. Finding one that has already tapped into much of that potential is even more satisfying. Hopefully, this is a production that will find life again beyond the Fringe Festival.”

DC Theater Scene: “SHOPWORN is the kind of show that strikes a chord in this current political climate. With an ever-churning news cycle of ‘could it get worse?’ moments followed by troll-filled comment sections, it’s nice to get a chance to laugh at the way we disagree.”
