Originally a part of Sacred Fools ongoing Serial Killers series it unfortunately met its untimely demise leaving the show unfinished. This iteration concludes the epic journey of Ylva(Kelly Moore) and her sister Skittles(Emily Bolcik) on their way to slay The Dragon. I don't even know where to begin in describing how ridiculously fun this show was. The entire audience found ourselves struggling to catch our breath after each laugh. From the zany costumes and larger-than-life performances of the entire ensemble to the stellar comedic timing and some of the best fight choreography I have ever seen on stage at Fringe, if this show isn't on your radar it needs to be. ... full review

Zany, hilarious, whimsical and ridiculously fun, this show is a riot from beginning to end. Kelly Moore has written an engaging, magical tale, to showcase, not only her expert sword skills, but her comedy chops and wry sense of the world. Not to mention, she's gathered some of the LA's best comedy performers all in one show. Not to miss.... full review

♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ Bits and zingers and zingers and bits! Zingers and bits! ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ A mad dash of guerilla comedy that slapsticks you in your stuck face!! Raw emoticons pureed into a double dab of salsa. Python's mushroom fever trip.... full review

Goofy, funny, late-night absurdist parody of the fantasy genre. Quite a lot of fun.... full review

This show was hilarious, start to finish. Loved how imaginative and fantastical it was with all it did on a limited budget, they really put money and time into this show and it showed in how great of an atmosphere and experience it was. ... full review

A hilarious, well-crafted story with a cast full of talented people. They used incredibly smart bits to make up for the lack of budget, and nothing is thrown away. Well written, performed, and directed. I was sad when it was over! ... full review
ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 09, 2019
Fun characters in a simple story allows it to be about them and not the plot. Enough heart to make us care, but not so much that we lose the comedy. Some of the best fight choreography I've ever seen on stage. ... full review
