Description: Artemis Exchange found themselves in the middle of a Buick-sized pickle (so to speak) when their head writer, Christopher Karr, suddenly claimed to have contracted an acute illness, the dreaded 'Exhaustum Fever,' that prevented him from, among other things, writing a play. After countless discussions, what eventually spewed forth from his creative consciousness over a dark and dreary autumn and winter was a massive piece of postmodern text, a manuscript, a bible of Artemis Exchange's collective thoughts and feelings on humanity and its eventual downfall. After reading each and every syllable of this behemoth, we used a process of improvisational adaptation to forge a theatrical production that aims to explore the darkness that has shadowed mankind since creation and will continue to do so until our bitter end – all while trying to make you laugh enough to forget how fucked we really are.
Show Length: 60 minutes
