After a baffling Edfringe run in 2018, The Piece is back to delight and to baffle. Part immersive-comedy, part endurance-test, The Piece follows the disintegration of a performance artist as he strives to put on the perfect piece. More so, The Piece asks just how far down the rabbit hole will you go as this faceless madman’s dream transforms into your nightmare. (Also: There will be glowsticks.)

"The most memorable and extraordinary experience of 2018...with reactions ranging from full-on cracking up to nervous laughter to scratching their head. It's something you won't forget in a hurry."
- The Wee Review (Fringe Experience Award 2018)

“Holy s**t, Rich Templeton has devised a doozy of a politically charged, hilarious, thrilling piece of a performance piece in The Piece. Rich masterfully controls the audience...into a frenzy of nervous, excited laughter that grows and grows. Do yourself a favor and see this terrifying/joyous funhouse ride.”
- Peter Michael Marino (Edfringe's Show Up & Desperately Seeking the Exit)

“Brilliant, baffling, hilarious, and some of the best audience care in a clowning show I’ve ever seen. If you’re looking for an experience like nothing else check it out.”
-Peter Antonio (Psychic comedian, Is Your Mind Safe?)

"You may not fully understand what has happened, but you will be laughing with your whole, freaked out, body."
- Kevin Laibson (Peoples Improv Theater (New York) Artistic Director '14-'16)

“The Piece is changing the game.”
- Ed Larson (Comedy Central)
