Meatball Séance Premieres
at the Edinburgh Fringe

Did you hear John Michael has a new boyfriend? Oh yes! In honor of the grand occasion, you and the new beau and the entire audience are cordially invited to meet John’s mom. But she’s deceased… Sad. So he’s gonna summon her from the dead by cooking her famous meatballs onstage! Yay! Wait, what?

“If the mention of ‘audience participation’ makes you clench up, we’re here to tell you that John Michael’s Delightful Meatball Séance is going to change your whole theater-going world. It’s joyful, raucous, silly, subversive and powerful.” — Jennifer Davis-Lamm, Dallas Observer
