Quick Dish LA: NE-FAIRY-OUS ‘Absurd Comedy with Heart’ Plays The Hollywood Fringe June 9-27th

Ne-Fairy-ous, Absurd Comedy with Heart, will run at The Hobgoblin Playhouse June 9-27th. Performance company When Susan Calls premieres its newest theater work as part of the 2024 The Hollywood Fringe Festival, running for a limited engagement of five performances this June.

Ne-Fairy-ous, written by and starring Susan Sassi (Hollywood Fringe Fest, Flappers, Laugh Factory, UCB LA, iO West, McSweeney’s, Belladonna, and Slackjaw) and directed by Kate Huffman (Hollywood Fringe, Indie Fringe, Fresh off the Boat, Physical, Castle, UCB LA, and iO West), is a multimedia, musical, and solo show about a changeling named Mage Lynn. Mage Lynn the Changeling. She was an imaginative child with an extraordinary imagination. After being abused and outcast, she is left alone with no friends, no talents, and no control over her emotions (or bodily secretions). Desperate to find joy and acceptance, Mage Lynn embarks on an absurd quest through movie musicals, game shows, and even cartoons to find her happy ending.

The script was originally developed with Emmy Winner Matt Hoverman (Playwright, TV writer, & Emmy Winner, Sofia the First, Fancy Nancy, Firebuds) in his GO-SOLO workshop. The work is a call to women who don’t fit into societal norms to boldly live out loud and without apology. It explores themes of feminism, learning and emotional differences, bullying, the value of family, and the benefits and disadvantages of reality and fantasy. Come check out one of the dates if you are up for a new experience!
