"It's the Marx Brothers meets Monty Python meets Mel Brooks. The off-beat characters, non-stop shenanigans and word-play render the story ineffable, but the over-all effect is one of the funniest, gosh-darned plays you'll ever sit through." - Dayton Daily News

Additional Info

Adamdong Klosterhagen, a lovable eccentric and self-proclaimed scientist, has a goal of resuscitating one of his frozen animals. Assisted in his endeavors by his sex-obsessed companion, Ophelia Rass, and wacky dentist friend, Jackson P. Langworthy, he brings to life a squirrel who manifests itself as life-size species named Pascal Dillday, a world-wise character in one of his many reincarnations. Throw into this dizzy mix a live-in cheerleader and an IRS agent who comes to collect back taxes and you have a madcap romp of outrageous proportions.
