Katie was busy, so Brittany brought a friend from the theatre world to a crazy, bloody, sexy, puppety show that sounds like a lot of fun. Here’s their report:
Katie is a bit of a buzz-kill when it comes to Halloween (sorry Katie). She hates dressing up, doesn’t like scary movies and gore makes her queasy. Brittany, on the other hand, has her requisite costume box in the closet and grew up on Tales From The Crypt. So when we got the press release about Thrillpeddlers Shocktoberfest 15: The Bloody Debutant and Katie was busy, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to call in our friend Michael St. Clair, a lecturer in the Theater and Performance Studies department at Stanford who’s been known to wear a costume even outside of Halloween reverie, to come along and review the show.
Brittany: So Michael, for your introductory Drama Talk & Drinks review, what did you think about the show?
Michael: It was brilliant. It was at least 50% more fun than I expected it to be.
B: That was, in my opinion, absolutely delightful.
M: If you don’t like comedy/sex/violence, or lots of gore, of fake blood, or demon summoning, or things flying in your face, it’s not the show for you. But if you like those things . . .
B: And like kinky fetish stuff . . .
M: Spiced up with a bucket of blood and terrible things . . .
B: SO MUCH BLOOD!
M: . . . Then you’ll love it.
