Description

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.
