    A hilarious, poignant portrayal of two couples: one human, the other hamster. It's charming and witty, with emotional depth. Breeders is sure to be a wonderful night of theater!

    This is a hilarious, smart comedy with an imaginative premise and characters that feel like friends. I would love to see these hamsters and humans on stage!
