The Savvy Bedlam Boarding House is a story of a wacky offbeat artistic tenancy and two roommates, one a riotous rock and roll poet the other a conservative western dime novel writer. This incongruous pair clash on every level of living, often in a hilarious and dramatic manner. They need to live together and make things work, or they’ll find themselves out on the streets.

The job is paid!
Please apply as you desire, we look forward to hosting auditions via zoom.
