Additional Information: “A classic black comedy from the king of the genre, Canadian playwright George F. Walker, this is one high-octane local production. It’s the story of two totally unlovable losers, Rolly and his son Stevie, who manage to bumble their way from peddling porn to kidnapping to arson and beyond.” ~ Winnipeg Free Press, Margo Goodhand 7/7/2011
