A Wickedly Zany Road to Revolution

 

“Listen kid, I’ll keep your secret, but this revolution… it needs to happen now. We need to do it now.” 

 

A coworker dispute turns deadly in this morbidly funny new play. Set at the height of the Assyrian Empire, The Handless King follows two humble government employees (played by Patrick Bynane and Parker Gray), both tasked with tallying the dead in the wake of a recent battle. The problem? Only one of them can keep his job. As the day wears on, truths are revealed, revolution draws near, and someone’s losing limbs before the sun is set. This world premiere—inspired by real artifacts from 728 BCE—explores a timeless truth: move with the times or get left behind. This high-octane historical fantasy comes to you after a wildly successful development at Amphibian Stage’s 2023 Sparkfest.
