You'll marvel at the fights and ingenious use of simple props! You'll gasp at the turns in the irreverent plot! You'll swoon at the derring-do of the fearless performers! You'll howl at the sheer, unrelenting comic force of it all!
Okay, I'll stop. Suffice it to say that I had a blast with these energetic Toronto merry-makers and their skewering wit, as did everyone else at Friday's riotous show. Plus, this is a new show to the Winnipeg Fringe and new is good.
I, for one, will be gathering every bone-in ham I can find to help Sex T. Rex fuel future westward quests.
