The acting and characters in the play were really wonderful. The beginning of the show is a little shocking and it took me a while to get over that and realize what a funny show this is. Can't say enough about the performers, they all were top...continued

Good Acting but difficult to understand story line. Appeared to be a series of vignettes loosely connected

I thought it was a creative and funny love story. The energy was great! So even if you lost track at times, it wasn't a boring play.

Quotes & Highlights

“[A] fierce, perplexing work … rich with striking verbal images and sharp cultural references.” —_Chicago Reader _
“One very unusual love story.” —The Stage
“Plot and dialogue are extremely baroque … while the action mixes Sam Shepard-style cowboy mythology with the sort of oddball twists the Coen brothers specialise in.” —Time Out London


Sometimes falling in love isn’t beautiful–it can just be a mess. When the mysterious Tanner Hicks intercepts a discerning waitress love tries to buck them off. Facts start piling up to show that Tanner’s past is not what it seems. Boyband butoh enforcers and a cokehead dentist help guide the way as Tanner follows a trail from a broken tooth to spliced genes. This poetic and humorous West Coast premiere is an eccentric love story frothing with energy.
