Chief O'Neill's is a good place to eat before or after the show. Or stop by for a Guinness.

I went to the matinee and parked half a block away on the street. Dress varied. I liked that benches and seats were available for waiting before the doors opened for admission.

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

More Information



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.

This play has mature subject matter and is not recommended those age 15 or younger.
