Wrecking Ball

Presented by Cincinnati Shakespeare Company at The Otto M. Budig Theater, Cincinnati OH

Oct 11 - 28 2023
Wrecking Ball

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company presents “Wrecking Ball,” a new comedy.

A Hollywood writers’ room becomes tense when drama spills beyond scripts and screens into the real world. A team of screenwriters get together to adapt a beloved, yet controversial, classic play for a new television series, but production halts when a shocking truth is revealed. The “Wrecking Ball” demolishes the pristine façade of Hollywood, and this cast of characters must find a way to rebuild in this caustic contemporary comedy that will have you talking the whole ride home.

October 13 – 28, 2023
Previews October 11 and 12


Tickets are on sale now. Preview performances are on Wednesday and Thursday before Opening Night, with tickets at $45.
