In the spring of 2012, the Foolish Theatre Company and the WorkShop Theater Company teamed up to present the New York premiere of HA!, a trio of acclaimed one-act comedies which have had over 300 productions around the world. Each of the plays has been included in the annual Best American Short Plays anthology.
The plays include Oedi (in which Oedipus Rex's wife/mother is more mother than wife), The News from St. Petersburg (a Chekhovian spoof about hhe effects of a spreading rumor) and The Whole Shebang (which asks, "What if the entire universe was just a science fair project?")

"Deliciously satisfying. Buoyant, funny and occasionally quite touching."
