 A raucous comedy about love, revenge, family dynamics, deception and greed. Through a fast-paced delivery, questions of class divisions and entitlement are peeled in front of our eyes: Who has the upper hand in the end? Those with wit or those with money? Those who are generous or those who are greedy?

Star Tribune
"...the whole show has been such inspired, silly fun."
Dan at North Hennepin Community College
"We NEEDED this laughter and silly fun. I think the whole world needs this right now. Always worth the trip, but especially so today."
Pam at Open Book
"We were DAZZLED! It was so hilarious and just what we need these days when all around us is gloom and doom- isn't that what theater was invented for?"
Cherry and Spoon
"Seeing a Ten Thousand Things show makes me happier than just about anything"
Marcia at Dougherty Family College
"I didn't know how desperately I needed to laugh...and it feels so GOOD to laugh!"
John at Open Book
"Wonderful. We laughed for 85 minutes! What a great escape."
Talkin' Broadway
"...a constant flow of laughter"
Inmate at Ramsey County Women's Workhouse
"This was my first play ever. It was great, so much fun!"
John at Open Book
"Scapin was the best production I've seen this year! Randy Reyes got the spirit of commedia dell'arte just right for a modern audience. Thank you for lifting our spirits for 90 minutes at a time when just being in the world means we're assaulted by bad news..."
Broadway World
"We all had a hoot of a good time."
Attendee at Windom Community Center
"This was such good therapy."
Janis at Open Book
"Every time we attend, I just can't stop talking about the company. Yes, every show is a virtuosic collaboration of talented, passionate performers and incredibly enjoyable on that level alone. But the deep and long-standing commitment to the 10,000 Things mission keeps me talking about the company. Theater as a profound story-telling, theater illuminating a raw life experience, theater for everyone, created and performed with utmost respect and humanity."
