Sandwich is a surreal cabaret, which leaks blood and uses bread to soak it up. With a cast of characters moving on all fours, this show will make you laugh while forcing you to smell the burning flesh surrounding your soul. Purposefully bad writing meets up-tempo show tunes dressed in furry costumes. Like a children’s show with mixed-message-morals, this was Banana Bag & Bodice’s first attempt at musical theater, and quickly became a cult favorite hit!
To celebrate 3 years of living in Beacon NY, we are introducing their brand of absurdist physical theater to their new community. We have turned our back yard garage into a performance shack, making Sandwich our inaugural full production in this space.

Sandwich is a surreal cabaret, which leaks blood and uses bread to soak it up. With a cast of characters moving on all fours, holding a shiny knife in one paw while washing the other of the evidence. This show will make you laugh while forcing you to smell the burning flesh surrounding your soul.
