The Fourth Wall Presents...
Since its founding in 2010, The Fourth Wall has toured extensively across North America, garnering praise from critics and audiences alike for its performances that blend music, dance, and theatre into a signature hybrid art form. The Fourth Wall Presents… is a new performance series which pairs the trio’s unique interdisciplinary approach with the work of other touring artists, many of whom will make their Boston debut. The Fourth Wall aims to deepen its connection to its home community and import amazing work discovered on its travels. With a range of performances including circus acts, Moth-style storytelling, and original one-act plays, The Fourth Wall Presents… will showcase works that defy description and transcend genre.

The Fourth Wall will perform Fruit Flies Like a Banana: WORLD TOUR as a double feature each night alongside Edgar Allan, created and performed by the Brooklyn-based company The Coldharts. Described as a “manic lullabye inspired by the childhood and short stories of Edgar Allan Poe,” Edgar Allan has garnered numerous awards across North America since its premiere at the 2013 Twin Cities Horror Festival.
Praise for Edgar Allan:
"Clever, weird, moving and gorgeous on the ears... 'Edgar Allan' is a perfect Fringe play."
- National Post
"This play is my 2015 high-water mark so far - a rolling and demon-haunted dissection of childhood friendship and inevitable jealousy. Best of all it's damn funny when it wants to be."
"Katie Hartman exudes malice even as she beautifully sings her intent… Darkly funny and dangerous"
January - SHOW UP!
Peter Michael Marino has been writing, performing & producing solo shows for a long time. He wanted to see what would happen if he showed up at a theater and created a solo show on the spot. The result is Show Up - a semi-improvised, socially anxious comedy that's based on the audience's wonderful and tragic life experiences. And, there's a party. Since May 2017, Show Up has played NYC's Under St. Mark's, The Pit Loft, The Tank, Ryan's Daughter, Orlando Fringe, and Edinburge Fringe, with shows coming to Toronto and Massachusetts in the coming months.
Peter Michael Marino is an award-winning solo show teacher, director, producer and performer. He’s the creator and co-producer of SOLOCOM, which has launched over 400 world-premiere, international solo comedies at The People’s Improv Theater. His long-running solo comedy Desperately Seeking the Exit chronicled the unmaking of his West End musical flop Desperately Seeking Susan; receiving 5-star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe and Adelaide Fringe, and a London transfer. His 2015 solo chat show spoof, Late with Lance! played NYC, London, Buffalo, Orlando, Hollywood and the Edinburgh Fringe. Pete’s production company PM2 Entertainment recently presented the NYC debut of Joe's NYC Bar, two encore performances of David Mills: Shame! at Pangea, LA comedy duo Moby Alpha, and the acclaimed solo show hit David Carl's Celebrity One-Man Hamlet in NYC, Edinburgh and Chicago. Peter is an adjunct professor in sketch comedy at Pace University.
Show Up is generously sponsored with fine products from Post-It ® Notes. Pete uses them in the show. And you should use them at home and at works you remember to show up for things.
