Our Condolences in FringeNYC this Weekend

Lauren Olson’s (Dunk) show, Our Condolences, which ran at the Magnet Theater for an extended period of time will be playing at the New York International Fringe Festival this weekend.  Directed by Rachel Hamilton. Don’t miss out this is a great show!

Lauren Olson’s mom died when she was 23. Everyone said such wonderfully inappropriate things that she had to write a show about it. Our Condolences introduces you to ten different characters who all mean well but can’t quite get it together. Oblivious, nervous, cheerfully in denial, horribly tactless, unintentionally selfish, over-the-top; they left voicemails, wrote letters, cried inappropriately, gave unsolicited advice, and stopped her in the middle of work outs at the gym to have “deep conversations” about how sad she must be. A solo show about death for those of us who would rather spend our time laughing than crying.
