The Oil Boiler
Who's Pulling Your Strings?
In a secret nightclub run by assassins, who lives? Who dies? And what does God have to say about it? Welcome to the Oil Boiler, the twisted tale of Leon Nesrac, a neurotic hitman who has lost his mind and possibly his nerve. In the moments after killing his lover, Leon converses with his selves and God about the nature of free will and his attempt to come to terms with the person he was, is, and will remain.

The Oil Boiler is the collaborative creation of a group of Kansas City artists across the disciplines of theatre, music, and the visual arts. Staged on a set designed by award-winning architect James Pastine and visual artist Tyson Schroeder, the actors interact with and around a live jazz combo, puppets, a side show emcee and the omnipresent voice of GOD.
