The feisty physical foursome is back!


After taking last summer off, we’re positively oozing new comedy to share with you. Like it’s seeping out of us at inappropriate times. Help!

Fourplay is a collection of all brand new sketches, performed in our trademark fast, physical, and funny format!

Get your tickets early! Seriously… like now…


They’re a quintessential fringe comedy pick for a reason. Every season, this veteran comedy troupe sketches up a 60-minute parade of yuk-yuks and whoop-whoops, so Fourplay is just another sharp and gleefully physical entry in a very long Hot Thespian Action tradition.

There are about a dozen sketches here, ranging from solo vignettes to full quartet efforts. In one highlight, grandparents wistfully recall the golden era of Tinder; in another, the Pointer Sisters’ pitch for a new Sesame Street tune goes terribly awry. No matter the subject, the chemistry between Shannon Guile, Garth Merkeley, Ryan Miller and Jane Testar bubbles over.

Depending on personal tastes, these sketches range from merely bemusing to downright uproarious, but only the most committed career killjoy will leave completely unmoved. Oh, by the way, do be careful on your way out: you may find yourself singing a real earworm of a jingle about how to beautify your… uh, never mind, you’ll have to find out.
