HAMTRAMCK—Planet Ant presents Is It Okay To Say This?, a playful comedy sketch show written by Mike McGettigan’s Sketch 5 graduate writing class. This sketch show will run from February 28 through March 15 at the Planet Ant Black Box Theater. Tickets are $13 in advance, $15 at the door,  or $20 for both Glamway, a Planet Ant original one act comedy and Is It Okay To Say This?.

This parody of “Are you afraid of the dark?”, serves as a spring-board to shed some comedic light on the absurdity of our modern world. What do a family gathering, Kevin Arnold’s last heartbreak, aunties hell-bent on protecting their culture, a good guy with a gun, a robot assistant, a smiling woman, and the 2020 election have in common? Maybe everything! Maybe nothing! The show treads the often fine line between humor and horror and just might leave you crying from both.

Is It Okay To Say This?  is directed by Mike McGettigan is written and co-directed by Steve Branstrom, Sarah Budziak, Josh McDaniel, and Nazneen Miah, and is assistant directed by Alex Meitz. The show features Adam Bacigal, Brad Carter, LaShanette Harrison, Malachi Lee, Robyn Mewha, and Amanda Weted.
