After many months of creative toil and bureaucratic finagling, construction on the new Monkey Wrench Collective space in downtown Fullerton began in earnest yesterday, with an official projected completion date of "soon."

Disappointingly, not a new avant-garde seating arrangement for the audience.

Though there remain, inevitably, a few more red tape hurdles for us to jump before we can make any official announcements, expect to see new opening dates soon for the rebooted U.S. Premiere of Mark Ravenhill's "pool (no water)", paired with Wallace Shawn's epic monologue-play on the corrosive moral influence of money, "The Fever".

Imagine this, but with lights, seating, completed walls, 
no construction equipment, and actors.

In the months to follow, the Monkey Wrench Collective stage will feature new work from Brad Fraser, Chris Secor, and Clownzilla; a revival production of Mark Ravenhill's controversial British hit "Shopping and Fucking"; and a few more surprises we're keeping discretely secreted up our Collective sleeve.

Until that time, we shall conduct ourselves, even whilst under construction, ever apropos to the regard in which you hold us.

Yes, that sounds about right.
