Will you find what you’re looking for in the woods?

In Veronica Tjioe’s The Last Croissant, Three sets of campers, forced to share a single cramped campsite, must come to terms with their own crises, whether it be mysterious origami cranes, rapidly vanishing snacks, or overly zealous bird-watching husbands. Combining dark humor with magical realism, “The Last Croissant” will surprise you at every turn, subverting gender norms and upending theater stereotypes as it combines masterful design with unique storytelling.

The Last Croissant premiered in June 2019 at the Broadwater Main Stage as part of the 2019 Hollywood Fringe Festival. It received the Top of the Fringe Award, Best Ensemble Theatre Award, and Best of the Broadwater Award. The production was nominated for the Steve Kent Award for Inspiring Social Change and was nominated for the Larry Cornwall Award for Outstanding Music in a Play. The Last Croissant was workshopped at Inkwell Theatre (Daniel Shoenman, Artistic Director) as part of the Inkwell Development LAB. The reading featured most of the same cast as the Fringe Production, with Victoria Ortiz as October and February.
