For the third show in our 11th Season at Subversive Theatre, we're excited
to present the regional debut of the zanily subversive Holiday farce
CAN'T GET A DECENT MARGARITA AT THE NORTH POLE by emerging lefty playwright

Join us for the
deranged fun as we present this fresh new play by California-based progressive
playwright Matt Hanf. Twice now we've presented Matt's short works as
part of our sUBVERsIVE sHORTs New Play
Showcase. We're excited to have this opportunity to at last perform a
full length work by this promising fresh subversive artist.
