Review from Alex Okun

Re-enactment of Quentin Tarantino style dialog and themes but improvised on an audience suggested theme.

Review from EmmanuelLee

The BATS knocked it out of the theatre! They hit the pop culture references, the smoke-filled dialogue, copious surprising close-range mayhem, taunting and volatile female/male characters in a tight compelling story. It was Chainsaw Bananas!

Description

The inglorious BATS-ters stage a freakin’ crime drama and take no prisoners!
