"The mall is the town. The town is the mall. The mall is a disco mall."

Fleaven by Miki Johnson

A brand new play by the author of American Falls



Fleaven is the tale of Heaven, a disco professional laid low by the town's town villain Flame who was left behind as Heaven achieved international disco stardom with the band Denim Shorts.  Turning to hip hop and Rick James covers, Flame and his entourage terrorize the townspeople in an attempt to reunite with Heaven, leading (of course) to an epic disco-mall showdown.  Told in a startlingly original style, Fleaven explores the breaking up and reconciliation of a deep friendship gone dark.  

Fleaven is unlike any play you've ever seen.  It sings and plays, rhymes and raps, dances and roller-skates its way through a Seussian disco dreamscape.  Johnson's unique voice is whimsical and pithy, heartfelt and hilarious throughout.  Fleaven is a world unto itself, a joyride in the truest sense of the word.



Miki Johnson was recently honored by the Houston Press in their inaugural Houston Theater Awards as the Best Playwright for American Falls which received its World Premiere production by Catastrophic last May.


Fleaven features the most eclectic ensemble in Catastrophic history including local actors from Catastrophic and other local theatres; prominent local musicians; notable local dancers; and a hilarious assortment of weirdos to complete the carnivalesque atmosphere.
