Running Time: 40 minutes | Tickets $15. "Buried Alive! A Matchbox Theatre," is a frightfully funny exploration of our fear of being buried alive, of dreadful discoveries and of the curious phenomenon of 19th-century "waiting mortuaries." Based on historical and medical facts, this play is tiny, intimate and interactive. Buried Alive is for an adult audience and due to the intimate scale of the show, seating is limited for this intriguing, hysterical and very macabre experience. Deborah Kaufmann has performed her original solo work in festivals and theaters in Europe, Australia, Canada and throughout the US. This year she celebrates 25 years with Big Apple Circus Clown CareĀ®, professional hospital clowning program. She performs as "Dr. Dibble" and oversees the artistic growth of more than 80 BAC-CC clowns. She teaches Pochinko-inspired mask-to-clown, physical comedy and eloquence, and specializes in authentic audience connection. She coaches and directs performers who create their own material. She directed four acts in the 2010 NY Clown Theatre Festival. Nytheatre.com called her, "a performer to be trusted, enjoyed, and seen!" www.tooshorttofallover.com
