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

Hunter Gatherers Capital T Theatre Peter Sinn Nachtrieb

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.

The show features an all star cast including B Iden Payne and Austin Critics Table nominees and winners Kenneth Wayne Bradley (KILLER JOE, BUG), Rebecca Robinson (SICK), and Liz Fisher (DYING CITY) and introduces recent award winning actor and LA transplant Brad Price to Austin. The show will be directed by Mark Pickell who won both the B Iden Payne award and Austin Critics Table award for the last dark comedy he directed...
