Additional Info

BAFO is a scathing black comedy set in the declining defense industry. It takes a group of middle class white men and one black woman from Human Resources HR on a hilarious downward spiral from affirmative action to downsizing and then to a disgruntled ex employee on a small arms rampage who asks each one for their "best and final offer." Described as "Dr. Strangelove" meets "Dog Day Afternoon", BAFO is an unapologetically testicular satire that asks the millennial question, "Where's the threat?" At its philosophical core, the play is about threats: Precambrian, primitive, emotional, physical, political, social and technical a whole food chain of threats. Comedy of the blackest stripe is the only way to deal with such primal currents, and the defense industry setting of the play is the perfect metaphor since it is devoted to the process of seeking and neutralizing threats: our national autoimmune system.
