Watch & Listen: Virtual Plays from The Flying Anvil 

When: Until February 22nd 

Where: Online

Flying Anvil Theatre is re-releasing two shows from their 2020 virtual season as on-demand streaming videos through February 22nd. Streaming passes for the shows The Deadline and Branching Out are available via their website,

The first on-demand offering is the original comedy Branching Out , by Jayne Morgan. Three bickering 60-something, White siblings discover they have a Black, much younger, half-sister during a family Zoom call. The three redefine their family tree in this adult comedy. Some mature language is used, themes are appropriate for high-school and up.

The second offering is The Deadline Office mates joke, bicker and backstab their way through Power Points and Break Out Rooms until one of the employees hears a strange noise and goes to investigate. Concern rises to panic and then outright horror as something infiltrates the meeting and maybe, the planet.

Each on-demand show is available at starting February 12th. Tickets are recommended at $10, but audience members can choose their own price with “Pay What You Can" starting at $1.
