Milking BIG laughs from a mildly bizarre premise, this hysterical play feels like a mix between a derailing “X-Files” episode and a sassy family sitcom. Great fun!... full review

If you’ve spent much time at the Fringe, then you’ve probably seen Jim Hanna in at least one show. If you haven’t, then this is the show to see. Not only is he part of the amazing cast, but he also wrote this masterpiece that mixes politics with the supernatural. The magical cast of Hanna, Emily Dorsett, Kate Hellen and Lucie Beeby will whisk you away and provide a thought-provoking look at small town politics. ... full review

I really enjoyed this show. Above all else, I think that the political message in it is extremely clever, and I love the fact that it's subtle and not beaten over the head like most political shows often are. The dialogue is very witty, snappy, and will leave you on the edge of this seat. I think that this play will provide a wonderful experience for anyone who has the privilege to see it. ... full review

A fantastically made show that plays like the top tier caliber of an original "Twilight Zone" episode. Often funny but never losing it's satirical wit, and delivering a poignant message without being too heavy handed or silly. This is some of the very best that Fringe has to offer!... full review

Sharp wit mixed in with biting commentary makes for a refreshing political show that balances both the truth in commentary and its satire in a very strong way.... full review
