What I liked

This ticked a lot of boxes for me – by turn hilarious, dark, and strange. Michael Shaw Fisher took a small stage and made it feel enormous, Alli Miller and Heather Schmidt absolutely destroy in an hilarious courtroom scene, while Eric Curtis Johnson and Schoen Hodges are incredible in a scene where they bond over a joint. This is a show so good I was angry I wasn’t in it and hadn’t written it.

What I didn't like

I could’ve used more…

My overall impression

A cast, script, and director firing on all cylinders! I absolutely loved it! A surreal journey filled with humor and inspired staging executed with assassin-level precision by the cast. This is a show that defies expectations while simultaneously exceeding them. Would see it again without hesitation! A fucking delight!
