BROTHER MARIO

Written by Seamus Sullivan*
Directed by Paul Reisman*

Flying V Theatre returns with the world premiere of Brother Mario, a parody play by Seamus Sullivan! Directed by Paul Reisman, this existential mashup of the worlds of Anton Chekhov & The Super Mario Brothers shows Mario as he begins to wonder if there is more to life than jumping, go-karts, and princesses in other castles. Come visit the Mushroom Kingdom in this world premiere production by Flying V favorite & company member, Seamus Sullivan, as Mario & Luigi battle Bowser and mid-life ennui in equal measure.
