Bringer of the DoomA world premiere, award-nominated comedy written by Joe Thristino and Directed by Mark Koenig

New York, NY (March 7, 2023) – Skimble Skamble Productions presents the world premiere of Bringer of Doom, a daring, debauched, and (at times) otherworldly comedy written by Joe Thristino. Mark Koenig directs a cast of four, including Peter Kendall, Jed Peterson, Bridget Ann White, and Bimini Wright. A 2022 Finalist for the Ambassador Theatre Group’s Playwright’s Prize, twelve performances of Bringer of Doom will be staged at The Players Theatre, 115 MacDougal Street in New York City, Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:00 p.m. and Sundays at 3:00 p.m. from April 6-23, 2023.

There are evenings that get out of hand...and then there's Bringer of Doom. With a surprise visit from her estranged, despised mother and her mother's young lover on tap, Lotte enlists an alcoholic ex-stand-up comedian, Demetrius, to brutally "roast" the maligned pair at dinner. As the night ensues, however, even darker ulterior motives come to light, and events take a madcap, morbid turn that nobody saw coming. 

"Bringer of Doom is a comedy about family, relationships, and existential dilemmas," said director Mark Koenig. "It will take its audience to an unexpected, satisfying place - laughing all the while - and make you ask yourself, 'When is it okay to be okay?'"
