Jackdonkey Productions: The Assassination of the Archduke of Austria-Hungary Franz Ferdinand 

Written by Joey Hamburger

Directed by Zach Christensen 

Through humor, tragedy, and shenanigans, we are witness to the story of a significant moment in history. The assassination of the Archduke of Austria-Hungary, Franz Ferdinand.


Jackdonkey Productions (@jackdonkeyprod) started as a Minnesota Fringe company inspired by absurd, surreal, and experimental theatre. Breaking into the Minneapolis theatre community with four 5-star Minnesota Fringe productions.

In the last six months, we have taken a devised show on tour, received the 2022 St. Louis Fringe Artistic Innovation Award, and sold out our first two independent production runs with Far Away by Caryl Churchill, and Shaun: An Absurdist Comedy by Delvina Logeais.


We are looking for an ensemble of 10 actors! A majority of the cast will play multiple roles. Emphasis in humor, physical comedy, and movement.

Jackdonkey Productions strongly encourages actors of all ethnicities and identities to audition.
