The Temperamental Artist

22 Feb, 2015 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm

About the Show:

In this dark comedy based on the classic cult movie A Bucket of Blood, Walter Paisley is a put-upon bus boy at a beatnik café whose greatest dream is to be an artist. When he accidentally kills his landlady’s cat, he covers it in clay and passes it off as sculpture. Finding himself an overnight artistic success, Walter feels the pressure to produce more work. As the police close in and the murders escalate, Walter zeroes in on the girl he loves, determined to make her his wife … or his next sculpture.
