Collaborating again with Sacred Fools after the acclaimed co-productions Land of the Tigers and The Behavior of Broadus, Burglars of Hamm will present their acclaimed production of this previously unknown masterpiece by Swedish playwright/provocateur Lars Mattsun (1849-1912). Through Mattsun's surreal theatricality and stunning wordplay, the audience is engulfed in the tale of a troubled young man named Philip, who follows a Mysterious Child into a world of art, sexuality and madness. Much of the original cast and production team return, including controversial director Todd Merrill. RESA has played to great acclaim in Los Angeles, Seattle, Edinburgh and New York, and won the Top of Fringe award at this year's Hollywood Fringe Festival.

"The production is in turns sporadically hilarious and perplexing, but always intriguing."

"The writers that “revised” Mattsun's original concept (Carolyn Almos, Matt Almos, Jon Beauregard, Joel Marshall, Todd Merrill, Katharine Noon, Victor Ortado, Laura Otis, and Selina Merrill), created a piece that is deep in words, deeper in concepts, and overall, a piece that really moves!"

"The Burglars of Hamm are a delightfully merry and madcap lot. And if you needed proof of that, well there's Resa Fantastiskt Mystisk."

"A story of “art, sexuality, and madness,” the show dares you to look at theatre a different way, to wonder if things are more meaningful if you know more about the inner workings of a play, or if you're really just better off being in the dark. Laughing uncontrollably. See this immediately. Very Highly Recommended"

"This is a terribly funny show. It skewers the artistic process, the pretension of artists, and all the supposedly-amazing classical works that contemporary audiences force themselves to watch to feel high-brow. Listening to Merrill gradually fall apart as the actors get the fine details wrong scene after scene is pure joy. The entire cast is solid across the board as they each play themselves as actors playing their parts... Don't miss it."
