What I liked

Almost the vibe of underground theatre, very funny !

What I didn't like

Could have seen this go on longer. The opening narration was a little uncertain, and could be sharpened up a little, but the uncertainty added to the charm of the whole production, and set the tone for the proceedings.

My overall impression

This is exactly what you want at the Fringe — the silliest, funniest, edgiest, off-the-wall production ever. A narrator explains it’s a staged reading/improvisation of a combination of “Moby Dick” and “Peer Gynt,” while the participants admit to knowing very little about either work, and put on a series of hilarious scenes lit with non sequiturs in some kind of a theatre space or large meeting room. I’m not sure if “The Cleanup Crew” is doing this as a workshop production or the final result, but catch this, or whatever they do next ! The “limbo scene” was off the hook !
