Feiffer's People


Jules Feiffer

A unique conception by America's renowned humorist, cartoonist and social satirist, Feiffer's People offers a characteristically inventive and flexible kind of experimental theatre

Made up of brief sketches, monologues and playlets which are wildly funny yet bitingly acerbic in the sharp observations which they provide on the state of the union and the modern world in general

No specific casting or staging requirements are designated, and producing groups are invited to give full rein to their creative imaginations in selecting, arranging and mounting the various excerpts which will be shaped into their own presentation. This could be a curtain-raiser for a longer play; part of an omnibus program; half of a double-bill; or, because enough basic material is provided, even a full-length program

Staging can range from an open area with stools to a series of stylized settings, and it will be readily apparent that the imaginative use of lighting and appropriate music will add much to production values.

But the intrinsic merit and joy of Feiffer's People lies in its complete freedom of form. It provides the essential ingredients for a revue-type program of richly comic dimension, and magically suggests a variety of means for bringing this to life theatrically
