Paranoia (The Destroyer)

Bug at the Vortex Theatre

By Steven Robert Allen

Let me start with a hilarious understatement: This play is not suitable for children. And when I say “not suitable” I mean you'd have to be completely deranged to bring anyone under the age of 16 to see this thing. The two leads spend half their stage time smoking crack.
