American writer Bruce Norris takes a withering look at phoney liberal values in this hilarious social satire.

A cosy family Thanksgiving dinner for six. Someone—or something—is leaving bite marks in the avocados, Clay and Kelly’s little daughter has an itch, and Carol can’t remember who played Gandhi...

a brilliantly satirical piece that gleefully skewers the values of the impeccably liberal rich... a terrifically entertaining, sometimes disturbing play that asks uncomfortable questions about the way the West lives now  -   Telegraph
