“A larger than life, wildly physical, morally deviant and chaotically violent bacchanal… a verbose drunk’s dirty limerick of incest, vomit and wonderfully deranged villains… a carousel of repulsive yet brilliant clowns gunning their way to a satisfyingly bloody finale.”
Michael Rowland, Fringe Review

“Prague Shakespeare Company pulls out all the stops, and a few organs, in madcap production… Poor taste is on display everywhere in the production, as actors hurl or spout various liquids on each other and in a kind of infomercial format, various intestines are removed perorally with great gusto… This is the kind of show that is so warped… nothing is as we would expect… rush out to see it.”
André Crous, Prague Post
