The Berserker Residents and Swim Pony Performing ArtsThe Giant Squid

September 28 – 29, 2012  ·  Harold Prince Theatre

Wacky and off-beat, Philadelphia’s own The Berserker Residents and Swim Pony Performing Arts are known for their fantastical bouts of comedic genius. Witty storytelling meets props and costumes that “extract maximal laughter from every sound cue and sequin” (New York Times), creating the pop-comic aesthetic for which this ensemble has garnered mass acclaim. Prepare to give “your goofball muscles a pretty thorough workout” (New York Times), in The Giant Squid, a science lecture gone awry that plunges you to the depths of the sea with the demented crew of a ragged whaling ship as they encounter a marine terror.
