REVIEWS

“Sometimes when one falls down the rabbit hole of reading plays, one finds themselves in a wonderfully weird world of absurdly surreal comedy, which was certainly the case with this wildly over-the-top short from Jeff Dunne. With anarchic glee, Dunne makes smart points about altering one’s perspective and learning to relax, and by the end what seemed insane appears normal, and what passed for normal seems intolerable. I’ll take some of that tea, please. And the biscuits.”
