Hella Fresh Theater of Kensington presents Autopia

As part of the 2019 Philadelphia Fringe Festival

Two friends do their best to be disappointed by each other while waiting in line at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 1978.

Hella Fresh Theater, the DIY theater company in Kensington is hella excited to be returning to the Philadelphia Fringe after nine years with a new play, Autopia.

 

A failed teacher runs into her former mentor at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art while waiting in line for tickets to the King Tutankhamun exhibit. The failed teacher, Leigh and her mentor, Mr. Porko, awkwardly reminisce and trace the paths their lives have taken, never straying far from the comfort of their own pitiable angst. Wandering LACMA, Leigh and Mr. Porko stumble upon an exhibit of an obscure Chicana artist and take comfort in being aware of a marginalized talent.

Hella Fresh Theater is a DIY theater company based in the Papermill Theater in Kensington, a space we built in 2010. We have written and produced 17 original plays in that time, creating outstanding independent theater that relies on actor talent to drive character based dramas. The smaller the budget, the better.  We make people.
