An absurd comedy that blends slapstick, nonsense, and existentialism. This is the tale of two inseparable friends, renowned killers, and the most famous faces in California.

Bummer is old and wise, a battle hero in his younger years. Lazarus is young and desperate, an empty brain ready to be filled. Lazarus wants to be taught everything; from counting to quantum physics. Bummer, however, is fearing for his life. The pair are trapped and are beginning to starve. They must escape soon, or they will surely die.

Also, they are both dogs.

★★★★ “Exhausting and exhilarating in equal measure” - Get The Chance, 2018

★★★★★ “It’s wonderfully absurdist, a beautiful, beautiful script that feels philosophical and existential all in one — and it’s a delight to watch” - Ed Fringe Review

★★★★★ “A beautifully bizarre two-hander. A highly intelligent play filled with humanity, which will leave you questioning everything” - Three Weeks, 2018
