An esteemed audience said:
Slaughter City, Karen Fort's directorial debut at the Prop Thtr,is a richly layered, mysteriously haunted portrayal of the timeless condition of the working poor. While the Kentucky born and raised author Naomi Wallace teases the audience with humor and spices the script with sex, she touches us much deeper with a pair of spellbinding, transcendent characters locked in a sublime dance of demonic mysticism from which there is no escape. One is reminded of Ray Bradbury's "October People" from Something Wicked This Way Comes".
 
The loathsomeness of the workplace is the outcome of senior management's callous attitude toward labor, which in turn causes a hilarious compensatory degradation of senior management's character marvelously overacted by the wonderful Nick Leininger, who exhibits much more range than I am willing to put into print.
 
But it is Sharon Daniella Gopfert in the role of the scab Cob that one cheers for, the girlfriends Maggot (Stephanie Sullivan) and Roach (Kyra Morris) that claim our empathy, and Tuck (Lee Peters) who follows through with his own private moral mimicking of labor's misery and retains his humanity even as a member of management. Tuck gives my favorite speech in the play, I felt myself glowing when he spoke of his hands. And I will not leave out College Boy, Brandon (Mitch Salm). I attended the play with 5 ladies, and he definitely made an impression on them.
 
Go see this play. It is tightly knit at a leisurely pace, with multiple messages and an actor or two you would not want to miss.
