Meet Gerald Bloom: overcommitted, overworked, undervalued, overstimulated, undernourished, and pulled in a million directions by friends, family, work, politics, health and enlightenment. Today is Gerald’s birthday and he is up against everything. Everything is a fight. Welcome to Versus – a workshop premiere of Adam Lazarus’ next mind bending vision.

From the creative team that brought you Daughter and The Art of Building a Bunker, Versus is another bouffon-inspired experience that examines a common feeling in the world we believe we’re all grappling with: feeling overcommitted, overworked, undervalued, overstimulated, undernourished, & pulled in a million directions by friends, family, work, politics, health & enlightenment.

How on earth do we fucking manage? There isn’t even time to cry!

Following a narrative that is both real & surreal, Versus showcases the mundane horror of human existence. Life is funny. Life is not funny.
