EVAN ZES’ RENT CONTROL TRAVELS TO ATHENS FOR ATHENS2018, ELLINIKOTHEATRO'S INTERNATIONAL SUMMER ARTS FESTIVAL
 

Rent Control, the Off Broadway hit, written and performed by Evan Zes, a personal story of survival as a struggling actor living in the heart of New York City, is traveling to Athens, Greece, for ATHENS2018, EllinikoTheatro's International Summer Arts Festival, for performances June 21, 22, 23, 29 and 30, at 9pm.

Evan Zes, an actor/writer, born and raised in the Bay Area, portrays some 30 different characters in this wild-but TRUE one-man-play that recounts a period in his life as he struggled to survive, live and pursue his acting career in New York City.

When Evan falls backwards into one of the few remaining rent-controlled apartments in NYC, he finds a way to make money and pursue his dream, turning the apartment into a lucrative Airbnb scheme - that is until his moneymaking scheme backfires threatening to ruin his life. This cautionary tale has had audiences howling with laughter and at the same time on the edge of their seats. Critics have called it ...cheerfully profane,” a “...surprise thriller” and “...dangerously hilarious.”

Rent Control had back-to-back sold out runs beginning with its debut at the 2016 New York International Fringe Festival and following with the 2016 Fringe Encore Series at Soho Playhouse. Evan has since performed the show at the Tabard Theatre in San Jose, California, Penguin Repertory Theatre in Stony Point, New York, The Rye Arts Center in Rye, New York, Cleveland Playhouse, Hartford Stage, The Complex Theatre in Hollywood, The Greek Cultural Center in Astoria, Queens, and Teatro Jaco in Jaco Costa Rica.

Evan is thrilled to be bringing the show to the land of his roots.
