Draining the Swamp: A Musical Tweet

A new play, written by Desmond Price, Dawn Moore and Kevin Michael Cripps,

premiering at the 2017 Vancouver Fringe Festival.

Curious Creations, the company that brought you last year's Fringe hit, Waiting for Garbo, gets curious again - this time about the one percent and the one in charge. This musical takes a comedic jab at the privileged few who hold your wealth in their hands. Comic mayhem ensues when The Boss fires his apprentice, shoots his driver and gets arrested for murder.
