I liked the set design/use of stage and one or two of the performers but most of the cast was only about average. The dialogue and its heavy use of metaphors lost me at times. Theater was not bad for bargain tickets. They allowed their drinks to be brought into the seating area which was nice.

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