Furman Theatre Department Presents Doug Berky

For over 35 years Doug Berky has toured his performance work of physical comedy, mask theatre, and storytelling for audiences of all ages. Hosted by the Furman Theatre Department, Artist-in-Residence Berky presents a range of performance styles from his physical comedy “schtick” to heartwarming world tales told with hand-crafted masks. Berky’s art draws inspiration from commedia dell’arte, vaudeville, mask and mime theatre, and the influence of such theatre greats as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Carol Burnette, Red Skelton, and Marcel Marceau. Berky performs Dec. 2nd – 3rd at The Playhouse on the Furman campus in Greenville. Tickets $5-$10.
