The gang from Four Humors Theater has brought us a distinctive brand of youthful barbed-wire brainy humor over the past several years; personal favorites include the satanic Deviled Eggs, the snake-oil tale Mortem Capiendum, and the darkly Elizabethan Bards. This time out, they deliver the apparently Orwellian Welcome to Dystopia, about an authoritarian world in which the powers that be have you coming and going, controlling both your material life as well as your fantasies, and basically requiring that you be grateful for it. Not that any of this bears any similarity to our current situation, mind you... so long as our kids score well on those nationally standarized tests at school, and we still have a choice between ESPN and the historical musings of Glenn Beck. Now where did we put those pills?
Thursdays-Sundays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: March 12. Continues through March 27, 2010
