Who knew school shootings could be so much gosh darn fun? If you want to get your Brecht on, and have a rip-roaring time, head on down to Hollywood’s Theatre Row for a good laugh – and an idea or two – as the Buzzworkers go for Brecht.

Downs’ rip-roaring send up ricochets with Brechtian interludes and a cast including a quartet of deranged cheerleaders, a pretentious newscaster, soccer moms and German doctors—each addressing universal questions regarding facts, faith and fate in this timely, dark comedy that breaks down all the walls of logic and realism.
