A very bizarre play. Didn't know there would be full frontal nudity for all the members of the cast. Too strange for my taste. Disappointed...

One of the most original ensemble work I've ever seen and certainly one of the most creative theater pieces SCR has ever presented. Kudos for bringing this to OC and great work Dave Barton and cast.

Quotes & Highlights

“Much of pool has the look and feel of the best small indie filmmakers—a fact as much attributable to Barton as to Ravenhill. Filled with colorful lighting, [hundreds] of photographs, a rock music underscore and plenty of well-choreographed speech and movement, his staging is graphic and vivid.” —OC Register


Monkey Wrench Collective is devoted to producing U.S. premieres of European work, West Coast premieres of socially provocative new work, and vibrant productions of rarely-performed classics. Made up of former members of the critically-acclaimed Rude Guerrilla Theater Company (as well as a few new faces), this adventurous, button-pushing ensemble has worked together for more than a decade and now produces in Los Angeles.
