WWC Theatre Department
This production is part of the Warren Wilson College Theatre 2015-2016 season Not Suitable For Children: Crisis. Catharsis. Comedy. More information, including times and tickets, will be available soon.
The Story: Nan has decided to teach her abusive husband Kyle a lesson. With the help of her friend Simon (acting as her emotional and actual—cheerleader) and a stripper named Sweetheart, she tapes Kyle to a chair and forces him to watch as they reenact scenes from their painful past. In the piece de resistance, they plan to cover the room in meat and honey so Kyle will be mauled by a bear. Through this night of emotional trials and ridiculous theatrics, Nan and Kyle are each freed from their pasts in this smart, dark, revenge comedy.
