Philadelphia City Paper
By Debra Auspitz
knew the folks at Pig Iron could talk so well? The reigning Philly
kings of physical theater take a sharp turn from their usual fare with
this dark (very, very dark) comedy. This show demands in verbal speed
and dexterity what most of Pig Iron's shows demand in physical agility.
The good news is, this production is just as good as the troupe's best
physical work, like Cafeteria and Shut Eye (and, never fear, there are
plenty of ensemble tableaux and body antics to keep diehard fans
satisfied). It's impossible to pick one standout performance from the
small ensemble - every time an actor amazes you, another steps in and
ups the ante even further. The comedy is truly funny, and the tragedy
is often poignant, never maudlin.
