As the snow falls, the body count rises — and the suspect list only seems to grow, as clues and possible motives are revealed at every turn. With intrigue, mystery, murder, and a dash of humor, this snowy getaway unfolds into a dangerous game of cat and mouse."

TAMBO & BONES at Playwrights Horizons
Brendan made his Playwrights Horizons debut in the world premiere production of Dave Harris' Tambo & Bones.
"Tambo and Bones are two characters trapped in a minstrel show. It's mad hard to feel like a real person when you're trapped in a minstrel show. Their escape plan: get out, get bank, get even. A rags-to-riches hip-hop journey, this new comedy roasts America’s racist past, wrestles America’s racist present, and explodes America’s post-racial future — where what’s at stake, for those deemed less-than-human, is the fate of humanity itself."
Written by Dave Harris
Directed by Taylor Reynolds
When: January 19 - February 27
