"A fast moving, in your face and provocative piece from the many-voiced creator of MacHOMER. The mature thought, the simple intelligence of the questions get us thinking too and that's what good theatre does. There's lots of manic performance. There's also compelling work that is thoughtful, still and riveting. Daniel Brooks as director and co-writer has a keen eye for detail. Every image is startling and right. And the use of Ben Chaisson's video and sound design is masterful. This production is hugely theatrical. Who would I recommend this for? Anyone with an inquiring mind, who loves theatre that is edgy, intelligent and thought provoking. It's important. Don't miss this."
