About the Show
“HALF” tackles the absurdity of divorce with
wit, wordplay, and slapstick abandon.
“A Tour-de-Force . . . two fantastic actors and grand technicians go full-throttle through this giddy fairy tale.”
- Duncan Pflaster, Off-Off-Broadway World
“I can’t recommend this show highly enough!”
- Alyssa Simon, NYTheatre.com

A kingdom stands divided: when the King and Queen take a hatchet to their marital union, their servants reel in the crossfire. Meanwhile, the Royal Decorator and Royal Therapist strike a double deal, salivating over the wreckage. Servants and rulers alike struggle to maintain their footing as tension skyrockets and palace life careens into an uncertain future. Becca Foresman and Adam Zivkovic portray six madcap characters (often, all six at once) in this riotous farce.
First presented at the Red Room in 2012 under the direction of Dominique Salerno, the 2013 FringeNYC production of HALF is directed by Cara M. Tucker.
