What I liked

All of the performers captured the absurdity and abstraction of their characters and the piece, particularly the committed actor behind Chicken. The writing was sharp, silly, and addressed the tribalism and inanity of American political discussion without directly revealing its target. It was funny, confusing, insightful, and a little horrifying- much like America.

What I didn't like

I might say I’d like more clarity and context up front, but the fast-paced confusion beautifully fit the first half of the piece.

My overall impression

A fun, witty deconstruction of culture, conversation, and our current political moment.
