Molotov Theatre Group to Perform “Closet Land” –
Just in Time for the Holidays?

Capital Fringe Festival Multiple Award Winners Bring
Grand Guignol Aesthetic to Stage Adaptation of Cult Suspense Film

With the winter holidays just weeks away, Molotov Theatre Group, America’s second-oldest Grand Guignol theatre, has less-than-perfectly timed its next production – a stage adaptation of the psychological thriller “Closet Land” by Rhada Bharadwaj, in performance from November 15, 2008 through December 13, 2008 at 1409 Playbill Café (1409 14th Street NW, Washington, DC).

Showtimes are Wednesday through Saturday evenings at 8 PM, and Sunday evenings at 6 PM. A Pay-What-You-Can preview will be performed Friday, November 14 at 8 PM; there will be no performance on Thanksgiving Day.

The latest review of the production can be found online at

Tickets for “Closet Land” are available at the door for $18, with reduced price $15 tickets for Wednesday evening performances. Tickets can be purchased at the door or through the company’s Web site: Fans of the company who present their Molotov buttons at the door receive a three dollar discount (for walk-up tickets only).

“Closet Land” is the latest production from Molotov Theatre Group, which won recognition for “Best Comedy” in the 2007 Capital Fringe Festival and “Best Overall” in the 2008 Capital Fringe Festival. Featuring Washington, DC-based actors Jessica Hansen and Alex Zavistovich, the Molotov production of “Closet Land” applies the principles of the Grand Guignol French Theatre of Horror to this story of psychological and physical torture in a nameless totalitarian state.

Producing Artistic Director Lucas Maloney, who has directed each award-winning Molotov production to date, returns to helm “Closet Land.”

“Yes, our timing sucks, but what the hell,” said Maloney of Molotov’s latest work. “We know people are in the mood for heart-warming greeting-card plays after the Halloween season. On the other hand, we’re Molotov; we don’t know any better. You want heart-warming, there’s lots of kiddie theatre happening. You want your brain shoved upside your head, that’s us. So come see ‘Closet Land’ and get your brain shoved upside your head.”

“I mean, there’s really less blood in this one than our last project,” Maloney volunteered, “so it’s got that going on, which is good for the holidays. Right?”

“Closet Land” was first seen as a 1991 Imagine Entertainment film with Madeleine Stowe and Alan Rickman. In a future state, a government interrogator escalates psychological and physical torture against a female author, on the grounds that her children’s book “Closet Land” is politically subversive.

The Molotov production of “Closet Land” will be presented without intermission. So please pee before entering.

Your life can be aion gold enhanced, and your happiness enriched, when you choose to change your perspective. Don't leave your future aion gold to chance, or wait for things to get better mysteriously on their own. You must go in the direction of your hopes and aspirations. Begin to build your confidence, and work through problems rather than avoid them. Remember that power is not necessarily control over aion gold situations, but the ability to deal with whatever comes your way.
