Ricky and Louis

a soul bucket

& just one job to do

Ricky and Louis, two hapless dockworkers, just before clocking out and calling it a day, while away their time contemplating work, worrying about the bossman, and counting ducks. Like most of us, they are the easiest of marks.

Dane Futrell's original post-capitalistic, absurdist comedy moves with lightning-fast and wisecracking wordplay and whimsical buffoonery, all off-kilter and ajar amid our precarious condition. It's funny, until it hurts.


Our cast features Dane Futrell, Alec Taylor, Lauren Tindle, and Josh Needle.

Directed by Barry Cavin

Stage Manager Noelle Horldt


The performance will take place at the loading dock behind the old cafeteria on the grounds of the Florida Gulf Coast University Buckingham Center. Look for the Florida Gulf Coast University Buckingham Center Signage, on the western side of Buckingham Road. Turn onto Binet Avenue, and follow it to the stationhouse. Signage will direct you to the location of the play, on the docks behind the facility cafeteria.


Special Notice for the Audience: You must provide your own seating. You are free to bring a packed dinner if you like. There will plenty of room to spread out for social distancing and plenty of parking. This is an outdoor event, and we encourage you to dress for the weather. Restrooms are available at an adjacent building. We encourage you to arrive early and take in this remarkable location.


This play is supported, in part, by grants from the Florida Division of Arts & Culture and the City of Fort Myers.
