THE GREAT PIE ROBBERY

...Or We Really Knead the Dough

Written and Directed by Ben Tostado

 

THE GREAT PIE ROBBERY...Or We Really Knead the Dough is about a small town pie shop that is danger of being taken over by the evil Vincent Von Villenueva. Can our hero Chicken Farmer John save the day and win his love, Clementine? This hilarious spoof of turn-of-the-century melodrama is as American as...well, you know. 

 

The Great Pie Robbery opened on August 10, 2012 at the International Fringe Festival in New York City.
