Meet the team of BARBECUE APOCALYPSE - Graham Carlson (John U/S)

May 16, 2018

Graham Carlson returns to The Cuckoo's Theater Project having just closed SHE KILLS MONSTERS (Miles). He is a graduate of The ACADEMY at Black Box Acting, where he is currently an instructor. Recent favorite credits include FIVE MILE LAKE (Jamie, u.s.) (Shattered Globe Theatre); CLYBOURN PARK (Karl-Steve) (Open Door Theatre) A WINTER’S TALE (Polixenes) (Fury Theatre) and ELECTION (Ben, reading) (Our Perspective: Asian American Play Readings). Graham is represented by BMG Models & Talent.


TCTP: What is your weapon of choice in the apocalypse?


GC: Sawed-off shotgun. If I can't get my hands on that, I'd prefer an axe. If the situation were desperate, a good baseball bat would suffice.


TCTP: What’s your signature dish that you bring to barbecues?


GC: I cannot go to barbecues or potlucks without bringing some kind of cocktail. Everyone knows I make a good drink and now I can't escape it!


TCTP: Which character in BARBECUE APOCALYPSE are you actually most like?


GC: Lol, sorry but the answer is Win.


TCTP: What’s your favorite end of the world movie and/or book?


GC: Probably Mad Max Fury Road. It's just so well done in every way and it blows my mind that most of those effects are practicals.


TCTP: What kind of apocalypse (zombie, nuclear, environmental, etc.) would you survive the longest in?


GC: I actually think a zombie apocalypse would be easier to survive in than an environmental apocalypse, depending on the nature of the damage. Like, no water? We're all fucked, nothing to be done, realistically. I think Chicagoans would make it out OK in the event of a nuclear apocalypse, although I'd probably want to head further north. Ditto for global warming - ocean levels just won't be as immediate of a problem for us.


Check out Graham's work in BARBECUE APOCALYPSE running 18 - July 21 at Prop Thtr.
