A struggling actor lucks into one of the few remaining rent-controlled apartments in NYC, and finds a way to survive the city and pursue his dream by turning the apartment into a lucrative Airbnb enterprise – that is, until, his moneymaking scheme backfires and he falls prey to a world of internet scam artists and low-level gangsters. Watch Evan Zes portray 25 characters in this wild-but-TRUE cautionary tale of greed and redemption. Rent Control had back-to-back sold out runs beginning with its debut at the 2016 New York International Fringe Festival and following with the 2016 Fringe Encore Series where it won “Best Solo Show” as well as the “Overall Excellence” award. It’s since been performed at Hartford Stage, Cleveland Playhouse, Westport Country Playhouse, Penguin Repertory Theatre, Centenary Stage, Mile Square Theatre, The Rye Arts Center, The Complex Theatre in Hollywood, The Tabard Theatre in San Jose California, Teatro Jaco in Jaco Costa Rica, and Teatro Elliniko in Athens, Greece.
