This collection of saucy comedic shorts is a collaboration between Berlin’s Manusarts theatre and local group Down the Rabbit Hole, which includes scenes written by American greats like Dorothy Parker and Woody Allen.

Set in New York City, the lively hub of gossip, alcohol and missed connections fuels the ardour of the small cast (the classic combination of three blondes and a dreamy hunk) under the direction of Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen, proving that American humour’s centre is the Big Apple.
