About The Show
What an absolute joy to watch the scenes we all know so well from Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction being retold as if by The Bard himself. Pulp Shakespeare weaves the stories of a pair of murderers, their boss’ alluring wife, and a desperate knight, together in a style that only Tarantino (and Shakespeare) could conceive. Pistols are traded in for daggers, cars for horses, and the ‘Royale with Cheese” for “Hachis Parmentier”.

Now Playing In The Asylum Lab
Working for the Mouse
Written and performed by Trevor Allen
Directed by Nancy Carlin
What really goes on at the Happiest Place on Earth? Trevor Allen once played Pluto and the Mad Hatter at Disneyland. He returns with tales of quirky co-workers, militant managers, and backstage debauchery in this unique coming-of-age tale. Working for the Mouse blows pixie dust in your eyes while offering a hilarious glimpse behind the ears of the Magic Kingdom. Voted Best of the SF Fringe Festival, it’s garnered sold-out houses and critical acclaim in San Francisco and Berkeley and around the Bay Area without once getting a cease-and-desist order from Disney. Be careful what you wish upon a star for… it just might come true.
