Clown Bar ep01 comes to LTA 7/14 & 15

LTA is pleased to present Clown Bar: Episode 1

Written by Adam Szymkowics. Directed by Matt Hegdahl.

Music composed and performed by Andrea Limoges and indie band Jacket.

The rules are strict, the jokes are dark, and the best way to serve a cocktail is to "make it funny." Immerse yourself in the gritty and gruesome world of underground clown-crime. Little Theatre Auditorium turned Clown Bar is after hours home to some once-jolly circus troupers who now get their kicks through sex, drugs, and murder.

Clown Bar’s plot is relatively straightforward: Former clown Happy (an appropriately debonair John Szczur), is now a detective who returns to his old stomping ground to investigate the death of his kid brother and once aspiring funnyman, Timmy (Gavin Johnson).
