Waiting for Ganol

Alex Marcus

Theater, Comedy & Improv


A South Philly backyard. A gender reveal. A giant cannoli. What could go wrong?

The Cosentinos are nearly ready to cut open a giant cannoli and reveal their new baby’s sex to the world. You’re invited into their backyard for WAITING FOR GANOL, a uniquely Philly, uniquely funny new play.

In a site-specific staging at a backyard garden, audiences will become a part of this South Philly family’s dramatic gender reveal in a comedy that explores the shape of parental love and the paths we choose to lay out for our children.

Cannonball, produced by Almanac Dance Circus Theatre, is the first and largest independent festival hub of the Philadelphia Fringe that presents risk-taking independent artists in back-to-back performances next to delicious lounge spaces, fostering creative collisions and community conversation.
