Free Indie Theater + Best bar in Brooklyn = Great Night
May 24, 2014 @ 7:45 pm - 10:00 pm
Opening night of Just A Few Hundred More at Rbar Brooklyn, plus 6 performances in May.
Just A Few Hundred More at Rbar Brooklyn is a play by Gustaf Heden staged in its natural habitat – the best dive in Brooklyn and the universe.
This is not some reading. This is turning a bar into a theater and theater into active anarchy. Come and try having your drinks with a newly written play instead of pool or a baseball game on a TV, try our dialogue before resuming your own. Drinks specials, play paraphernalia and a soundtrack featuring post-marxgaze legends The Amphetamines will be there for consumption. Free admission.
Let’s be frank (as Gray’s Papaya would say) – this could be a disaster. The other option is that starting now, going to get a drink and watching a fresh play will go together like gin and tonic or movies and overpriced popcorn. Let’s make it happen.

About the play:
Just A Few Hundred More is about guys that would have done everything right, had they not gotten everything wrong. Haller and Sparky decide to take charge of their lives, and embark on a journey encountering entrepreneurial drug dealers, cathartic cops, flashback-inducing jukeboxes, somnolent prostitutes and a dog.
The play was originally staged as part of Thespis Theater Festival in Manhattan in July 2013, with the following cast:
Harry – Brent Kirkpatrick
Haller – Cosmo Nims
Sparky – John Petsche
Moretti – Thom Pinto
Mindy – Joanna Pickering
Mandy – Brittany McDonald

Mindy – Kunwei Lin
EMT worker – Ben Brubaker
