So funny and so scary, perfect for Halloween. A sharp director and sexy cast who excel at their craft - truly remarkable theatre. Days later we're still talking about it, still laughing.

Dark and quirky humor and characters; enjoyed the interaction of the cast with the "animals". Wished there'd been more. Go see for yourself.
