Upright Egg Presents “The Goodbye Project” Opens March 4th!

The Goodbye Project


The Goodbye Project is an exploration of letting go and moving on. As one person contemplates leaving the comfort and safety of the 9-5 grind and seek new opportunities in a new city, another is called home to reunite with a family left behind long ago. The two are observed on their separate journeys by a trio of mysterious beings

The project continues in Upright Egg’s over-a-decade reputation of presenting devised work- in industrial basements across the Twin Cities, Shakespeare in city parks, in homemade cave tours (and caves) in artist loft spaces, and playfully tackling topics mundane and profound. The company also is continuing their tradition of theatre for all with pay-what-you-can tickets for every performance.

Brian O’Neal directs the original story devised by the company with co-collaborater Mark Benzel and playwright Brian Watson-Jones.

The Goodbye Project features a cast of Eric Balcerzak, Timothy Daly, Shannon Foy, Gail Kowsky, Bethany McHugh, Joey Ripley, Tom S. Tea, and Rob Ward. The design team includes Set design from Mandi Johnson, Lights by Julia Carlis, Costumes by Samantha Kuhn Staneart, and Sound by Joshua Stallings.
