    A fantastic twist on a nightmare scenario that explores human nature and the relationship with a serial killer in the most fun and playful way. Great work.

    A cleverly twisted dark (stress the dark) comedy, involving a serial killer's abduction of a young woman. Just when you think the play's broodingly intense opening will lead to an unrelenting, horror-filled chasm, you are surprised by the turn it takes.

    A dark comedy that almost shouldn’t be as funny as it is. By exploring the twisted dynamic between a tortured serial killer and his overly curious would-be victim, Seidel has crafted a fascinating play that explores our fascination with each other- and how that fascination devolves when confronted with the real person. Darkly funny and super compelling, this is a great piece for theatre companies looking for an unconventional comedy with a real human core.
