About the Show

This new comedic work mashes up Goethe's 'Faust,' the Gospels, Shakespeare, Christmas carols, and other disparate works into a political satire of the Drumpf administration, starring an ensemble of four actor/clowns.

"There are some strange and amusing moments. It's very intelligent and the connections it draws between Donald Trump and Mephistopheles are spot-on. However, the whole thing feels not quite together...I had a hard time following the action...The language throughout is poetic and visceral, and the cast really commits to relishing their degradation, but I missed the main event...I couldn't help but feel there was more there that just hadn't been communicated to me."

"The low end of the city’s menu of anti-Trump diversions...While, on the one hand, I’ll offer playwright Young a tip of a smutty cap for a remarkable variety of fecal reference, I fear beating that one drum does lose its shock value about 12 minutes in to the 60-minute presentation...Halliday, O’Shea, Strayhorn, and Watts are each original, definable, and endearingly arch...If you hanker for an edgy, 'out there' hour, this bizarre little Trumpian gag-fest (and I do mean gag) is your show!"

"This is experimental, Brechtian political theater done right, with every millisecond of the hour-long performance packed with nuance and perspicacity...The clowns’ performances and the pace of the play reflect the desperation of the time they are living in...Heagerty perfectly interprets Young’s piece and its necessity to our moment...This was one of the best theatrical experiences I’ve had in my nearly 30 years regardless of its absolute timeliness and I encourage all who can to see it."
