A NEW SEASON DAWNS
nimbus announces 2005-2006 season at the Minneapolis Theater Garage

August 17, 2005: nimbus, the nomadic Twin Cities theater company known for producing innovative and expirimental work, has settled down: at least for a year. The company has booked time for all four of the plays in its coming season at the Minneapolis Theater Garage, on the corner of Lydale and Franklin Avenues in Minneapolis.

DECENCY, CHARITY AND HIGH EXPLOSIVES
nimbus 2004-2005 season ends with <cite>The Firebugs</cite> at 4th Street Theater

January 20, 2005: This dark comedy explores self-deception and moral flaccidity in the face of impending disaster. In a town wracked by a string of arson attacks, the bourgeois socialites Christian and Babette Betterman allow two shady vagabonds to move into their attic. As it becomes increasingly obvious their guests are really firebugs, the spineless protagonists exhibit a political cluelessness and comic human despair that is strikingly relevant to our times.

THEY CHANGE REGIMES MORE OFTEN THAN WE CHANGE CLOTHES
nimbus presents <cite>Beautiful Things</cite> at the Minneapolis Theater Garage

October 15, 2004: What is Beauty? What does it mean to have it, to desire it, to acquire it… to take it? Five Americans find themselves trapped in comfort and imprisoned by luxury when violence breaks out near the seaside resort they are staying at. As the insurrection moves closer, we discover that good taste can have deadly consequences.

TAKE THIS JOB AND KEEP IT
nimbus makes its fourth annual Fringe Festival offering, Unemployable

June 22, 2004: Maybe you could fly a jet! Maybe you could be a vet. Maybe you could be write a book! Maybe you should be a crook! And maybe you don’t want to do anything but sit on the couch and watch Dr. Phil. No matter what your work or what you do to avoid working, Unemployable, the latest and greatest production from nimbus, will remind you why you do it.

IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT
nimbus 2004 season opens with Endgame at Xelias Studios

March 9, 2004: Somewhere between life and death, just short of the night but far past dawn, four spectral characters wait in vain for the end. The end of the world, the end of their lives—the end of something . . . anything. Not quite comedy, not quite tragedy, nimbus opens its 2004 season with the Samuel Beckett’s modern classic Endgame.
