In a live-acting homage to role-playing games, Professor Archie McDinklethorn and Sister Sandwich travel from the relatively safe confines of the Waylan School of Botany and Herbalism into the quicksands of The Southern Giraffa Desert, in search of succulent plants and accompanying adventure.
Included in the ticket price is a 4 course meal, designed by our Executive Chef and co-Artistic Director, Erin Brindley
Our annual Pressure Cooker hands up and coming artists Butch Alice and Alexei Cifrese the keys to Nordo’s kitchen and theater for one weekend to create a thrilling integration of food and performance that breaks the traditional mold of a Nordo production.
The Pressure Cooker’s 5 performance run exists to give emerging local artists the opportunity to work in the Nordo sandbox of theater and food with a limited budget and serious time constraints. The Pressure Cooker invests in the innovation of producers, writers, and directors, cultivating new work that bends the genres of dinner theatre and performance, and pushes the limits of experimental theatre. We provide rehearsal time, feedback sessions, stage construction aid, marketing assistance, menu development, and one week of unfettered access to Nordo’s Culinarium and staff for tech and performances.
