Order Chaos Theater Company's 2022/2023 Season!



by Melinda Lopez

Mala is an irreverent exploration of how we live through, cope, and survive in the last moments of our loved one’s lives. Grounded in Lopez's distinctive emotional language and sharp humor, this powerful one-woman show, starring Ángela Kabasan González, poetically moves between daily routines and urgent 911 calls; a parent’s growing frailty, and a daughter’s quest for grace. 

Directed by Jean-Paoul C Clemente

Holly Dazed: A Festively Confused Cabaret 
Written and Directed by: Jean Paoul C Clemente

Lee has planned every detail of his classical piano holiday recital, and he is determined to put on a polished (if somewhat boring) show for his friends and family.  What he didn’t plan on is a very lost Holly crashing his stage, but it turns out, everyone could use a little Holly Dazed spirit in their lives!

Are legends born or made? For one week in 1965, a young journalist gets the chance to answer this question when he accepts the invitation to live with the legendary football icon Vince Lombardi and his wife Marie. Through revealing conversations with Marie, his players, and Lombardi himself, the man behind the myth is revealed.

“LOMBARDI is theatrical catnip for husbands and boyfriends otherwise reluctant to see most Broadway shows: Football! Vince Lombardi! The legendary Packers!” ~ The Associated Press

Based upon the book When Pride Still Mattered – A Life of Vince Lombardi by David Maraniss

The Gin Game 
by D.L. Coburn

What begins as a friendly game of Gin Rummy between two nursing home residents escalates into all-out war. With every card Fonsia and Weller flip, the stakes and emotions rise. In life, we play the cards we are dealt, and like Fonsia and Weller – there are winners and there are losers. This powerful and darkly funny Pulitzer Prize winning show is one you will want to experience.
