A solo show written and performed by Kurt Naebig
Directed by Connie Canaday Howard

What happens when you achieve the high-rolling lifestyle you always dreamed of…at thirteen years old? An extraordinary and funny coming-of-age story set during the 1970s skateboard boom, about a semi-pro boarder who opens a successful business, gets interviewed by Charlie Rose and falls into drugs: all before high school. Stove Toucher is a high adrenaline, hilarious, heartfelt recounting about getting everything you ever wanted–and then watching it fall apart. Play contains adult themes and language.
