SWORD OF TRUST
First show: August 04
“Equal parts spry, improvisational comedy and salient social commentary” –Chicago Reader
“A career-defining performance from co-star Marc Maron” –CriterionCast
When Cynthia & Mary (Jillian Bell & Michaela Watkins) show up to collect Cynthia’s inheritance from her deceased grandfather, the only item she’s received is an antique sword that was believed by her grandfather to be proof that the South won the Civil War.
The two attempt to unload the object to a curmudgeonly pawnshop owner (Marc Maron) & his man-child sidekick Nathaniel (Jon Bass). When Mel and Nathaniel discover there’s a black market for the relic, the two pairs reluctantly join forces to sell this rarefied ‘prover item’ to the highest bidder.
The adventure that ensues takes the four of them on a wild journey into the depths of conspiracy theory and and Southern disillusionment. – SXSW
