This was fun, free show, just as described: cheap, dirty and fun. Go if you like Boston jokes and um, nether regions jokes. A group of older audience members walked out in the middle of the show, so I would say it's not for a certain demographic.

The play was adult innocence at its best. The story line was fun and silly. If you are looking to relive your youth and/or see your id played out before your eyes, then you should go and see it.

Written by Boston playwright John J KIng

Directed by Barlow Adamson

Playwright and producer King says of the show’s origins: “I wanted to do a show that was a blast for the audience. When I read the novel of _The __Wizard of Oz_, I kept finding strange connections to Boston, and it’s been fun to create this tour of our city through the eyes and narrative arc of a story we all know and love. The familiarity of the tale and setting, I hope, will give the audience a lot to connect to and laugh at.”

Shortly after an unmentionable event which may or may not have filled the air, sky, and land with radiation poisoning, the play’s four heroes follow the Freedom Trail Road to the Crimson City, then go on a hunt for the Wretched Rex of the West. A Boston-set update of The Wizard of Oz, Bear Patrol is a fairy tale about a truly nuclear family.
