"You'll walk out of this show not knowing what hit you" - Susan G. Cole, NOW Magazine
Thank you to our amazing audience and the Theatre Passe Muraille Backspace for an amazing two week run!
"Amaka Umeh and Zoe Katz are stand-outs – but every member of the cast has multiple skills and they all sing superbly. Plainly the performers – led by Jerry Schaefer as the emcee who can’t control himself or anyone else – have an inspiring commitment to social justice.
Don’t be daunted by the two-and-a-half-hour run-time. You won’t be bored for a second. And playwright Rouvan Silogix is a gifted talent."
"The show asks who the real monster is: the monster that Dr. Frankenstein creates, or the scientist himself? The Facebook activism feel (taking on everything and focusing on nothing) continues with sketches about #environmentalism, the #SayHerName movement, and #TrumpTweets, all pointing at the “caveman” within."
