GIVE IT ALL BACK features Sideshow company members Matt Fletcher and Andrew Goetten with McKenzie Chinn, Lindsey Kite, Paloma Nozicka, Pat Whalen and Mary Williamson.

In a swank French hotel room in the mid-1960s, an artist hides out from a world that’s turned on him. As a cavalcade of familiar faces tries to break down his door, he smokes, talks, drinks and tries not to think about acoustic versus electric. But when a prime career opportunity lands on the table, he has to decide which version of himself he wants to be, and how to keep the past from bubbling up beneath him. Calamity West delivers a hilariously sardonic examination of how you hold on to your art when everyone else thinks that it’s theirs.

Regular run: Thru Sunday, December 18, 2016

Curtain Time: Sunday at 3 pm.

Tickets: Regular run: $20 – $30. Students/seniors/industry: $15 for all performances (excluding opening).
