FRIGID New York @ Horse Trade and Cave Theatre Co. present the world premiere of this absurdist comedy about six college friends who gather to celebrate a recently failed marriage.
Tensions run high despite the cookie cake. Add in the complicating factors of alcohol, emotional instability, and firearms, and you’ve got six people deeply in need of a reality check—and, in one case, a qualified taxidermist.
“A masterfully crafted show, something so wacky but so rooted in the inward and outward complexities of life (as are so many absurd things) that it encapsulates life as we acknowledge it to be, but are not always so eager or able to share with others…From the ingenious plot to the messed up crew who make it all too real, you are absolutely going to love this show…If the plot isn't enough, the actors who bring it to life are brilliant; the show is really perfectly cast."
"While Wimmer often goes for absurdist humor, the more realistic and relatable jokes are the funniest ones...Wimmer clearly knows how to write humorous situations and compelling characters, but keeping things a little closer to earth might result in a better, more relatable play. The cast puts their all into the roles, giving the performance a ceaseless energy...There is plenty to like in this production, but those who are not fans of absurdist humor might not appreciate every joke."
