THE STORY:

Skewed family values and the deep and dark secrets they create become a life force for Valerie, the infamous butcher of Baraboo, Wisconsin.  Once her husband has gone missing, everyone suspects she played a hand, especially her nosy sister-in-law who just happens to be the town sheriff.  Enter the drug-pushing pharmacist daughter who just might hold the key to the ultimate unanswered questions. 

 

"Both violence and wackiness continually threaten to erupt in Marisa Wegrzyn's macabre comedy...It's all smarter, funnier and truer than it sounds, thanks to Wegrzyn's extraordinary ability to imbue goofiness with menace."
~Chicago Reader

 

“Playwright Marisa Wegrzyn has penned an absurd mystery. Her ordinary Wisconsin folk take on dark personas in this clever farce. Wegrzyn gathers a flock of red herrings and slits their throats one by one. It’s clever and zany.” 
~Chicago Now
