Pre-show disclaimer: “The Piece takes place in the dark. As you enter the attic space you will be given a glowstick (“phosphorescent rod of safety.”) If you don’t want the performer to bother you, just put the glowstick in front of your face. Enjoy.”

Part immersive-comedy, part endurance-test, The Piece follows the disintegration of a performance artist as he strives to put on the perfect piece. More so, The Piece asks just how far down the rabbit hole will you go as this faceless madman’s dream transforms into your nightmare. Glowsticks up.

“Holy s**t, Rich Templeton has devised a doozy of a politically charged, hilarious, thrilling piece of a performance piece in The Piece. Rich masterfully controls the audience...into a frenzy of nervous, excited laughter that grows and grows. Do yourself a favor and see this terrifying/joyous funhouse ride.”
- Peter Michael Marino (Show Up & Desperately Seeking the Exit)

"The Piece is different than anything I have ever seen. More like a rollercoaster than a solo show, The Piece is a comedy show inasmuch as it inspires an emotional experience so complicated, the only thing to do is laugh. This thing is approaching comedy from a wildly different angle than other comedians. You may not fully understand what has happened, but you will be laughing with your whole, freaked out, body."
- Kevin Laibson (Peoples Improv Theater (New York) Artistic Director '14-'16)

“The Piece is changing the game.”
- Ed Larson (Comedy Central)
