You remember the sheet fort. Constructed with a few sets swiped from the linen closet on an “inside day” or for a slumber party, or for meetings of secret societies- we crawled in and dreamed, schemed, and told sensational stories to each other, often in the shadows cast by a flashlight. In a Sheet Fort Experience, we bring you into the secret society again. We initiate you by bringing you into our story. Once you cross the threshold, regardless of how you enter, we are officially in it together.

“I have not laughed this hard in so long!”
“Thank you for helping us to think for a few hours. Beautiful and moving work!”
“Hello, sheet fort. We just saw the sheet fort and it was very good. We laughed very hard. And uh, we were pretty surprised to find a sheet fort like this in the middle of downtown… an anomaly in the city.”
Review by Christopher Spencer at Ozark’s Unbound
Sheet Fort’s Show and Tell is giddy and gutsy. Unpredictable, tears-in-your eyes hilarious and edgy at points. Entering the Sheet
Fort is an adventure. It’s money well spent on an evening of experimental theater.
The first hour of the show has the talented cast performing in a “reader’s theater” style from these anonymous and entertaining little scripts. The selection of material was incredible and each actor works the material with the utmost skill. “Le Rant” is the climax of the first hour with almost all of the actors reading excerpts that are woven together in an ever-rising hilarious and intense audio pastiche…
It succeeds much more than it fails because of the artistic risks it takes.
