The Best of Craigslist














Conceived by Edward Daniels*

Directed by Jason Schlafstein*

Created by Flying V

The struggle for human connection is universal – and nowhere is the humor, frustration, and terror of other people more on display than Craigslist, the ultimate Want Ad of the internet. In Flying V’s first fully devised production, we’re diving deep into the waves of the World Wide Web as our incredible cast cracks Craigslist wide open and takes on 37 separate posts to adapt for the stage. We’re using puppets, punches, ukeleles, and a bedazzled loin cloth to create a night that ranges from the hysterical to the tragic to the just plain weird.

Looking to a hire a Dragon Slayer? Need to unload a sturdy wood dresser possessed by the demonic spirit of your ex? Woke up to a naked stranger in your bed and want to make that Missed Connection? You must be on Craigslist – and so are we. With text taken directly from actual Craigslist ads, the internet comes to life in this original show created and performed by Flying V.
