What seems like an innocent comedy about girlfriends takes an unexpected turn when it's discovered that there may be something darker than just chocolate in baker Caroline's desserts. Danger, frosting and manslaughter combine in a mad-capped tale of friendship, secrets and balls -- cake balls, that is -- written by and co-starring The Factory Theater casting director Stacie Barra. The female-driven comedy of Bridesmaids meets the mad science of Breaking Bad in this twisted tale of a baker, a blogger and something sinister hiding in a sugary confection. Learn More

Sorry to say, my friend and I left at intermission because the story was just too weird. We are avid theatergoers so we've pretty much seen it all, but this one was baffling. The reason I gave it two stars is because the performers did their best with what they had and the theater, in spite of being a storefront, is comfortable. I felt bad that the audience was so small. In fact the cast outnumbered the audience. Maybe no one came because it was Father's Day. Good luck to the hard-working cast in the coming weeks.

I'm sorry to say, I really did not enjoy this show at all. The show itself was all over the place. It tried to do/say/be too many things at once. Was it about race? gender? workplace conditions? labor/union issues? mortality? abuse of power? Yes...continued
Up to their elbows in carcasses and hard labor, workers Codd, Roach, Maggot, and Brandon strive to navigate their flawed relationships while their boss gropes them, pits them against each other, and manipulates a black supervisor trying to work his way up. The divides between union and scab, black and white, male and female, and past and present begin to melt, as the Sausage Man turns his grinder in Slaughter City.
