The Brothers Karamazov (Unabridged)

AUGUST 20-22, 2015
"DOORS" OPEN AT 6 PM, SHOW STARTS AT 7:30 PM
920 D STREET, LINCOLN, NE

We're taking the quirky Mustard theatrical experience to the original BACKYARD where all the magic, cardboard props, and surprising "edutainment" was first conceived! 

We present to you . . .THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV (Unabridged)

And we're bringing this merriment to you THREE nights in row!

WHAT IS THIS, REALLY?
This play (with some music) is based on Fyodor Dostoyevsky's 1880 novel of the same name. You may recognize it from this amazing little podcast we do, called "The Brothers Karamazov & Friends!"

The story follows the wacky Russian exploits of the three Karamazov brothers, Dmitri, Ivan, and Alexei, as they each live through the harrowing ordeal of their father's murder. In true Mustard fashion, this classic tale of the human psyche, angst, ennui, philosophical debate, and grisly murder will, of course, be an absolutely hilarious romp for the whole family to enjoy! 

WHEN?

Thursday, August 20th 
Friday, August 21st 
Saturday, August 22nd 

"Doors" open at 6pm & show begins at 7:30pm. Come early! The show will last approximately 2 hours including intermission, and it is rated PG-13 (for crude humor & "dramedy" violence.)
