About the show:
One man's brave quest to uncover the mysteries that cover the bathroom wall.
Here I Sit, Broken Hearted… chronicles the scatological odyssey of one man’s quest to discover the meaning behind one of the most enduring forms of communal communication known to Man: the prolific, occasionally pious, and perpetually profane verses etched onto the walls of bathrooms everywhere. Interspersed with lavatory experiences that the viewer might find either eerily familiar, or just plain eerie, Here I Sit… breathes life into those elegant epistles, bringing recognizable favorites from Kilroy to Phallus Man to life. Through story, song, and the occasional flatulence, the “Celebrants” (four actors who play a myriad of graffiti manifestations) propel the audience through this journey of self (and stall) discovery to the very foot of the Mount Sinai of Water Closet Enlightenment.
