Dad in a Box

A Darkly Comedic, Semi-Autobiographical, Solo Play

"Katzberg is a phenomenal shapeshifter of attitudes and inner lives...multimedia barrage and emotional cacophony..." - HiLoBrow

Kim Katzberg's NY Innovative Theatre Award-winning play Dad in a Box is back for one night only! A prestigious improv comedy workshop seems like an ideal career boost for Katzberg, until she finds her fervid imagination hamstrung by generic critiques. "...Suicidal girl on a date? I'm not sure it's a network thing." But the real improvisation starts when Katzberg's emotionally-distant father dies, paralyzing her psyche and forcing her to confront her California-cool brother and erratic, prodigal sister. Dad in a Box, a darkly comedic, multi-character, semi-autobiographical, solo play, follows queer theater artist Kim Katzberg as she struggles to gain access to her emotional core, while processing the impending death of her abusive father. The story traces Katzberg's efforts, through wildly inventive pieces in improv class, to prod and shock herself into facing and confronting her father's emotional hold on her.

Kim Katzberg (Strays, Darkling, Penetrating The Space) is an award-winning queer theater artist who has has been creating genre-bending solo work since 2010. Her work was nominated for the 2014 NYIT Award "Outstanding Solo Performance" (Darkling); and won the 2016 NYIT Award "Outstanding Original Short Script" (Strays). Strays is included in The Best American Short Plays, 2015-2016 published by Applause Books. Of her 2011 breakout show Penetrating The Space, the NY Times wrote, "Penetrating the Space has a glowing, vulnerable, haunting center." Theatermania said, "Katzberg is acutely aware of the strange contradictions in the theater world and she milks them to great effect, adding to an already hilarious physical performance." Dad in a Box is Katzberg's latest, winning a NY Innovative Theatre Award for "Outstanding Solo Performance" in 2019.
