Quirky, Intense, Great acting, Funny, Clever

See it if In an underground kitchen, the effects of the apocalypse cause a couple to dive deeply into the theatre of the absurd. Intense dramedy.

Don't see it if Second of a trilogy. Unsure if prior commitment is necessary for satisfaction. Despite cling splosh provisions, expect some sploshing about.

"A quick firing collage of absurdist clues to find your way through the maze of each moment. Reality, rules, linear, logic are to be left at the door...'Black Water' by Sylvia Bofill and 'Yovo' by Robert Lyons are the text trampolines that set the cast bodies to hyper speed. The performers wrap their skin, teeth, sinews and souls around the words like pigs in a blanket...It incites the delicious idea of, 'what rules will you break today?'"
