My overall impression

This black comedy is fearlessly honest and constantly hilarious about an awkward, painful, incurable (so far), and conversationally taboo subject: Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Who else on this planet of 7+ billion souls could have been so direct, so unapologetic, and so incredibly damn funny about IBS as the creator and lead performer of the play, Vincent Lacey? Answer: No one.
Lacey tells his own story, surrounded by a cast of four brilliant female comedians. The audience was laughing from the opening handstand set piece on. Music! Dance! Acrobatics! Satire! Poop jokes!
Don’t be afraid of the toilet stool at center stage. See this unforgettable play and laugh your ass off (probably an unfortunate figure of speech in this particular instance).

Sunbathe in Darkness

In the distant past of 2007, Casey writes fanfiction for the hit Alfie Wunderkid series of books. She writes really, really, really bad fanfiction. On purpose.
