Programs for adults can be “Family Friendly” or they can have a sharp edge. It all depends on the program, audience and venue.

Tale of Chelm

A sort of variety show, including stories, songs and music. Original and traditional tales often set in Chelm, a village of fools. (You don’t have to be Jewish to enjoy visiting Chelm.) Rated G to PG

The Bark Minder Project

NEW — stories of drugs, death, love, theft, humor, hope and happy endings

After nearly 20 years of self-censorship, Mark is telling tales that are definitely NOT appropriate for young children. (Unrated)

These stories aren’t for kids…

Designed for Theaters, Comedy Venues, Fringes and Festivals
