The Casket of Passing Fancy
At last! The Duchess is ready to make her offers, and a lifetime of regret is on the line. In this dizzyingly intricate new production, Rubber Repertory sets out to do nothing less than fulfill every audience member's deepest desire. The rules of the game are simple. Those who dare to sit in the Duchess's parlour will be given the chance to claim one of 500 strange experiences. Pick one, pick wisely, come early, play often: Once an offer has been accepted, it will be eliminated from the show forever.

Over a year in the making, The Casket of Passing Fancy combines elements of Victorian parlour games, performance art, and live auctions to create a show that will be different for everyone who attends. You may find yourself exploring an unconscionable taboo or reveling in the beauty of the mundane. Your experience may last 5 minutes or 50 years. Your choice may bring pain or pleasure, sickness or health, sweetness or sour. All that's certain is that some will win and some will lose, but no one will emerge unchanged.
