FARCE. Macabre, zany, sardonic, this collection of five short plays offers a unique look at death and all its horrifically comical trappings. In “Lemmings,” three lemmings perched on a cliff off the coast of Norway discuss how to jump off―cannonball, head first, or swan dive. In “Chicken,” two hungry people stare into an empty chicken coop and debate whether to cook and eat a nonexistent chicken. In “Praying Mantis,” Amy bites the head off of her boyfriend and then seeks solace from her friends to assuage her guilt. In “Spiders,” a group of arachnids plot revenge against humans and their most deadly spider-killing weapon―the daily newspaper. And in “Buzzards,” two cowboys stranded in the desert watch as hungry buzzards circle above. The men must find a way to kill the birds before the buzzards make a quick meal of them.
