Sex columnist Violet Blue attended our new show “Audacious Artefacts: Parisian Grand Guignol” and devoted her latest column to it. I think she liked it. Here are a few choice quotes:
The Thrillpeddlers newest stage show “Audacious Artefacts: Parisian Grand Guignol” is not going to be like any theatre experience you’ve ever had in your life. Or may ever experience again. Or be able to forget about, no matter how hard you try.
The Thrillpeddlers are back. This time, not only has the modern Grand Guignol theater company returned to the stage with a bloody vengeance, but they’re doing it Parisian style — back to the roots of Grand Guignol. Their newest show is an over-18 only, delightfully obscene and pornographic staging where very little is left to the imagination. It’s like your brain just had a lot of unprotected sex and maybe some roofies and you woke up with your frontal lobe feeling really stretched out in a way that you’re too embarrassed to even tell your doctor about.
It’s that much fun.
In this year’s “Audacious Artefacts: Parisian Grand Guignol” they go all the way (and then a little bit further) with their outrageous stage porn — after an appetizing cannibalism act, of course. And boy, do they have a good time. All four tasty, extremely playful, black-humorously presented short plays are not for the delicate, the easily offended or anyone under 18.
You’ll just have to go see it for yourself. With a date. But don’t say you weren’t warned, and don’t bring your mom unless she’s Susie Bright.
