About the Play
Written by Bret Fetzer and Stephen McCandless
Directed by Elizabeth Hunter
Clubfoot: or, Tales from the Back of an Ambulance is the vivid, surreal and wildly funny rendering of an Emergency Medical Technician's experience. Jump in the ambulance and be transported into a tripwire world of stroked-out delusionals, car crash victims, flesh-eating bacteria and more! It's an outrageously skewed view of humanity at its best and worst: fragile, resilient and accident-prone!
The Playwrights: Bret Fetzer is the former Artistic Director of Annex Theatre in Seattle, WA. His plays include Planet Janet, The Story of the Bull, The Changeling (adapted from Thomas Middleton), Passport and Blind Spot (co-written with Juliet Waller Pruzan).
