Thought Provoking and Raw!

Cheers to Horizon Theatre for giving plays like this a home! This fast-paced comedy takes the audience through an absurd and often grotesque whirlwind of vignettes that challenge the mind and ask the question: "What's not to like about poop?" The brilliance in this work is that during all the belly laughs and guffaws, there is real beauty and meaning sneaking up on you. Atlanta theatre fans will be pleasantly surprised at the intelligence of this cast and this script. WELL worth your seven dollars. Go see it! [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]

The most original and sublimely subversive play to hit the boards in Atlanta in the last few years. The cast is amazing, the direction superb, and the writing is exceptional. The music by Jennifer Drake is perfect and the dark night set seems to have been designed just for this show. If you're looking for a fun and thoughtfilled evening of theatre then check out this overlooked Gem! On the night I saw it I was one of only 15 people in the audience and everyone of us could hardly believe how such an outstanding production almost slipped under our collective radar. Wonderful wonderful wonderful and yet again wonderful. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
