Theater Breaking Through Barriers revives Charles Ludlam's comic noir, which pulls from works as diverse as 'Double Indemnity' and 'Therese Raquin' in its tale of love, murder, and piranha fish! More…
Chester Nurdiger lives in the back of his pet shop with his mother and his bored wife, Roxanne. One day, slick drifter Zachary Slade comes along and is hired to work in the shop. After sparks ignite between Roxanne and Zachary, they plot to murder Chester and feed him to the piranhas.
See it if You like over-the-top campy theatre with an unrealistic plot that is heightened by absurdism of the highest order.
Don't see it if You want to see an evenly talented cast that can do justice to the play...
See it if You can stand bad comedy, camp, cheesy acting, bad taste. You like not just "B Movies" but "F Movies." You're a "So awful, its decent" type.
Don't see it if Want good acting, a good story, or something meaningful. The actors and story are exceptionally bad in this one. Cliché city. My brain died.
See it if You have a simple mind and don't know funny. Watch the lead actress get banged and moan in a vulgar, explicit, and pointless sex scene. Why?
Don't see it if You want quality - this is not. All the actors are one-note and ill-trained. This is a stupid premise and tasteless material. Awful rip-off.
