A fast-paced, comic fantasia by two-time Fringe First winner Brian Parks. An ordinary guy skips work to play golf where he's struck by lightning, thrusting him into a world of hard-nosed detectives, talking golf clubs, and the Wife of Bath. Directed by Fringe First winner Margarett Perry. ‘A Gleefully out-there dark comedy' **** (Time Out, New York). ‘A sly commentary on the impending end times. Or how the human brain short circuits when its owner spends too much time in front of a screen' ( 'No American writer's more thoughtful in an explosive and comic way' (Scotsman).
