The Night Carter was Bad
by Ben Cikanek
directed by Mike Klar
About the Play
Big beers, tipsy walks on building tops, and pillow fights litter this dramatic comedy about the misbehavior and haphazard love life of a commitment-phobe named Carter. Stumbling through an office romance with a dancing personal assistant leaves him justifying overtime hours to a girlfriend who suspects he’s being bad.

I can’t say enough good things about the unities of this production. … The sophistication of Cikanek’s writing and Klar’s direction adds oomph in unexpected places … The cast ropes you in, charms you, turns you on your head, and sends you out the door wondering how Carter’s life will turn out. I highly recommend you go see for yourself what happens after The Night Carter Was Bad. - Josh Sherman

The four characters in Ben Cikanek’s new comedy come alive for us, rooted in the script but thanks also to solid, sometimes superb, acting and Mike Klar’s wise direction.

Ginny Myers Lee gives a riveting and complex betrayal of a modern woman…Tom Baran is also wonderful.
