About the Show

FIG Productions presents a new absurdist play about one family’s journey into the depths of madness, heavy drinking, and impending death—and the humor that can be found at rock bottom.

Confusing, Entertaining, Thought-provoking

See it if you like odd plays. well written individual scenes but hard to put it all together

Don't see it if you want a straight forward drama that makes sense.

Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing, Great acting, Excruciating

See it if you want to challenge yourself to figure out a seemingly complicated plot.But good luck on that as I, just like most others, did not get it.

Don't see it if you want to follow a plot w/o too much mental work. This one may require a lot & in the end still figuring out if it's profound or nonsense.

Excruciating, Great acting, Insipid, Indulgent, Ambitious

See it if Although the acting was good I DO NOT recommend seeing it.

Don't see it if The play was way too long. It did not make sense. I was sorry that I had attended,

Disappointing, Quirky, Slow, Confusing

See it if like odd shows that are long and incoherent. Willing to take a chance.

Don't see it if traditional style shows.

Long, Excruciating, Quirky, Slow, Thought-provoking

See it if Perhaps it went over my head, or perhaps it was just nonsense. But either way it went on forever. Some deep thoughts though.

Don't see it if you don't want to torture yourself

Theater In The Now
June 16th, 2017

"Director Richard C. Aven guides the cast of 12 through their nonlinear, perhaps therapeutically circular adventure in many modes of being...This impressive play isn’t straightforward, but neither are most interesting people...It’s the kind of show which doesn’t have a main character, and which calls for great performances from the entire ensemble. I applaud Menzies, Aven, and the cast for avoiding cliché in their portrayals of young and old characters."
