“Outrageously libidinous knockabout farce meets penetrating social satire in Peter Nachtrieb’s hilariously revelatory comedy, an almost two-hour laugh riot.”—San Francisco Chronicle
"Like a mash-up of the most brutal episode of Wild Kingdom and any episode of South Park" —San Francisco Bay Guardian
Pam and Richard are hosting their best friends, Wendy and Tom, for their annual dinner get-together. An animal sacrifice kicks off the evening, followed by a little more sex, violence, deception, revelations, wrestling and dancing than previous years. A darkly comic evening where the line between civilized and primal man is blurred, and where not everyone will survive long enough to enjoy the brownies for dessert.
"There are some tigers who like the woods, and others who prefer cages, magic shows and having their meat served in a bowl"
