After a schoolyard altercation between two 11-year-old boys, the parents meet for a civilized discussion of the incident – “practice the art of co-existence” rather than “slaughter each other with insurance claims.” Eventually, though, polite social veneer is stripped away and wild chaos erupts.
AstonRep continues their recent tradition of bringing fresh life to acclaimed newer works and giving them an intimate and honest treatment.
“Excellent” -Chicago Stage Review
“An eloquent blend of wit and despair, served with a side of mayhem.” -Chicago Theatre Beat
