Past Show:

Back to Workshop


Everything's Fine!


Heading back to the office? Adjusting to the “new normal”? Quietly repressing the stress of a world that requires denial just to function? Then we have just the show for you…

In their triumphant return after being closed by Executive Order, The Brave New Workshop takes a look at all the things at which we constantly have to avoid taking a look. In a world where image is everything, interacting with friends and family is just as harrowing as a new Cold War, and—What was that other thing? Oh, right!—a global pandemic (which may or may not still be present, depending on which restaurant you go to), Minnesotans are uniquely able to put on a smile and just get back to work. Or are they?

If you’ve ever had to put on a brave face to face a team meeting, act like your family is not watching 8 hours of screens a day, or pretend that you know where Ukraine is on a map, this show might be the perfect way to help you stop pretending and just laugh for an evening. Because we’re all doing our best, and if the last two years have taught us anything, it’s that our best is…not great.
