    Opposites (w/Level 3 Show + Level 1 Recital)

    8:00 pm
    Wednesday is Opposites Day! $5 BYOB
    Patrick and Mark are dear friends, but their contrary personalities make it difficult for them to tolerate each other for very long. The only way they can express their true feelings to each other is by hiding behind improvised characters and situations that they create as the comedy duo Opposites.
    Join Opposites Patrick and Mark every Wednesday at 8:00p as they tolerate each other long enough to explore contrary points of view through the use of multiple story lines, swapped characters, and colliding narratives.
