RACE CARD: play to win Karma Mayet
About This Show
Humor that bites and characters that speak in twisted tongues inhabit this wonderland of playful intellect. Journey through the psychic underground where we’ll dance under water and not get wet. Race Card unpacks the musty traveling papers stuffed into the 21st century’s history bags, and rifles through your very own drawers as well, calling on audience members to join the fray of stage play with both cued and improvised live-ness at every turn.
