About the show

Part of Soho Playhouse's Fringe Encore Series: In this absurdist piece, Hey-Zeus sits on the toilet as Quote Mamma feeds him Jell-O and wisdom. More…

In a whitewashed room with a white fridge, white sink, white porcelain toilet, and white everything else, Hey-Zeus frantically scrubs the white tiled floor with his toothbrush as his doting Quote Mamma watches. She tells us, "To live in clean is to live in perpetual orgasms." Their lives are a cycle of repetitions and restated experiences echoing impotent frustration and mindless obliviousness.

Don't see it if You want to be impressed w/ inventive writing, a challenging point of view, or demanding performances

Also Even though I agree w/ this show’s politics the delivery of the messag... Read more Read less

See it if You enjoy Theater of the Absurd plays.

Don't see it if You cannot take repetition and banal dialogue.

Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Entertaining, Weird

See it if You like niche shows and can make the jump between what's presented on stage and politics, deriding extremes on both the left & right

Don't see it if You're not into weird. You want something that is more than a simple provoking of thought or want to see a normal relationship on the stage

Banal, Cliched, Excruciating, Disappointing, Cringe-worthy

See it if You like to show your support to the organization

Don't see it if You got better things to do. And thank god it was only an hour.

Also This is one of those themes and concept that would have worked - only ... Read more Read less
