Rough House


Sad Songs for Bad People at Physical Festival 2016 June 7 + 8


“FOUR STARS” – Chicago Stage Standard

Rough House’s critically acclaimed show is back for two shows this June at stage 773. Sad Songs for Bad People invites you to trade in your troubles for an evening of murder ballads, ditties of death, and songs of tragic misfortune. Armed with piles of puppets, an arsenal of musical instruments, and a cheerful obsession with the macabre, the Sad Songs band is determined to put on one helluva show. But as puppet casualties accumulate, ill-buried tension begins to surface and threatens to shatter the band’s sunny facade.
