Previously presented as short selections at Dixon Place's Little Theatre, Catch!, and the Great Plains Theatre Conference, Toilet Time with Eliza Bent finally flushes full force at JACK this spring. Bent's lecture/ritual is a tour-de-toots taking on matters of science, philosophy and faith with no shortage of song and sass. The commode, the bidet, and the outhouse get special treatment as well as adventures in digestion. A special guest introduces the evening. 

Part of the series DAMNABLE SCRIBBLING: Brooklyn College Playwrights at JACK

Eliza Bent’s plays include The Beyonce (Breaking String Theatre, Payne Award for Outstanding Theatrical Event), Blue Wizard / Black Wizard (Other Forces, Incubator Arts Project), and The Hotel Colors (Bushwick Starr, L magazine’s 25 Best Stage shows of 2013). Her performance pieces such as Fire the Hire and Toilet Time with Eliza Bent have been workshopped and developed with New Georges, Catch!, Great Plains Theatre Conference and Dixon Place.
