"God, Forgive These Bastards" is a staged adaptation of The Taxpayers’s eponymous 2012 album. In the wake of his death, those who knew him remember the life of Henry Turner: an addict, an abuser, and a master storyteller. Part-devised theatre, part-concert, all-screaming at audience members in a rock-and-roll way.
This will be directed by Christina Higgins and Jessie McCormick
Performance dates and times are TBD based on artist availability, within the 2018 Fringe Festival time frame of September 6th-22nd. There will be a stipend at the end of the run.

Nine Hostage Arts
In 2012 Wyatt Flynn and Jasmine Kojouri were living together in an artist community, and spent their days spitballing ideas for a theater company that devised original musicals.
Flash forward to 2016, where Wyatt and Taylor Plunkett-Clements worked together in a gelato shop in Philadelphia. Taylor spent many shifts sharing her ideas and dreams of performing, while Wyatt scrawled out lyrics on receipt paper. Jasmine was living across the country in Las Vegas, but the group wanted to collaborate despite the distance. Wyatt had an idea for a show, and with a swift kick in the butt from Taylor, and Jasmine’s ability to direct in an unconventional creation process, the group created Pangaea.
The show was inspired by our once united continent that is now dispersed into the many continents we know today. It explored how we connect over distance and time, and is the foundation of what would become The Hum’n’bards.
In September of 2016, The Hum'n'Bards made their debut in the Philadelphia Fringe Festival with Pangaea.
We at the Hum'n'bards believe that art needs to be accessible to people, regardless of financial ability. Therefore, we do not require people to pay to see our shows, but we do invite them to pay as much or as little as they feel is appropriate.

Pangaea: A Folk Opera
The Official Soundtrack!
We know it's been a while, but making your first soundtrack takes a lot of work and our team is small but mighty.
We will have the full soundtrack available on Bandcamp soon, but for now, please enjoy this cut-for-time song written by Wyatt Flynn.
This song is available for as little as ZERO dollars, but you can pay as much as you'd like. Donations help us pay the artists who donate so much of their time to keep The Hum'n'Bards running. In the next year we hope to record the soundtrack to Glister (featuring BOTH casts!) and we have something amazing planned for Fringe 2018. A donation of just $1 can help make that an even sparklier reality.
If you would like to make a one time donation to our Annual Fund, you can do so here!
Your donation will go towards paying actors, musicians, designers and videographers.
It will pay for costumes, props, advertising and glitter.
Someday we hope this money will go towards buying a permanent space, where we can hold rehearsals, workshops and classes.
We thank you in advance for your support.
