Confusing, Overrated, Intense, Fluffy

See it if You want a sci fi type of play. If you are able to follow all the different things...stories going on inside the play.

Don't see it if At about 110 minutes, to long, too confusing. Writer should have stuck with one plot, not several.

66
Ambitious, Quirky, Bizarre, Disappointing, Uneven

See it if You enjoy some truly great acting in a fast paced bold story.

Don't see it if You want a story that makes sense, mediocre acting mixed with good, you want a real plot or to understand everything.

Also There were technical difficulties the night I went which might have co... Read more Read less

Confusing, Disappointing, Edgy, Slow, Quirky

See it if u like profoundly childish sch-fi. Several scenes of vomiting which could be inspirational to members of the audience.

Don't see it if You didn’t like The work of John Waters This is like a futuristic John Waters show

Confusing, Quirky, Edgy, Slow moving

Also I was one of the few in the audience who didn't find this funny at all... Read more Read less

Confusing, Edgy

See it if Plays with futuristic story lines combined with comedy.

Don't see it if If you don't like futuristic themes.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if You like unusual presentations, some loud dialog, profanity and some suggestive innuendos. Main actress portraying the robot was excellent.

Don't see it if you want a suspenseful plot as the synopsis suggests. It was clever but not as engaging as I expected. Most of the acting was above average.

Quirky, Great acting, Confusing

See it if You want to support local artists and see talented performers

Don't see it if You need a straightforward story line

Also There are several vomit clips I would gladly live without, I thought t... Read more Read less

“The wild experiment that is ‘Eat The Devil’ is as strangely brewed as you can image by the description. The whole stew is chock full of preposterous political wit and smartly tuned asides about right-wing online fear mongering and YouTube sensationalists. There is gold in some of the statements,...

“A maximalist spoof of the tech-obsessed, sex-crazed, post-truth time in which we live...The result is a farcical bonfire...’Eat The Devil’ does manage to connect the dots into a story that comprises a multitude of sub-plots, locations and characters...The experience is altogether a messy one.
