2009 Minnesota Fringe Festival
July 30 – August 9, 2009
There’s a cardboard box full of bloody body parts stamped “Some Assembly Required,” a young boy in the shadows with a hacksaw, and a stereo that plays “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head” relentlessly. In Monster, Christopher Kehoe seamlessly transitions through 15 characters telling the story of a young man who recalls the story of a neighbor who hacked his father to pieces in the basement which has been made into a film about a young boy who hacks his father to pieces in the basement which was seen by the future parents of a young man who happens to hack his father to pieces in the basement.
