UNZIPPED: A play about privates.

UNZIPPED, written and directed by Mark R. Trost, debuts this October in the Twin Cities on both sides of the river. Trost, the author of three books, turns his talents toward the stage with an unorthodox look at men in relationships. Presented on a stage unprotected by pretension and artifice, UNZIPPED is an unprecedented look into the privates of men: private thoughts, private conversations, private fears, private desires, private joys.

“Men need to see that sometimes you’ve got to let down your guard.” Trost continues, “UNZIPPED exposes raw and real glimpses behind the guard. UNZIPPED is unconventional because I’ve used all the letters of the alphabet. Not just the popular ones.”

Performances of UNZIPPED will be held in Minneapolis and Saint Paul:

October 5,6,7 at the Target Performance Hall in the Open Book Building

October 12,13,14 at the F.K. Weyerhaeuser Auditorium in the Landmark Center.

All shows 7 pm; tickets $12 and are available at
