ON THE ROCKS
THE GROOM'S A FAG;
THE BRIDE;S A CUNT;
THE BEST MAN'S A WHORE;
AND THE MAIDEN OF HONOR
JUST HUNG HERSELF IN THE CLOSET
by HAYGEN-BRICE WALKER
directed by ELAINA DI MONACO
"A few companies can stage loud late-night comedies filled with wild dancing, shocking sexual moments, and lots of fake blood. Many can mount dramas that probe dark, intense emotional trauma. Very few, however, can combine them in a production that's larger, grander, and deeper than the sum of its parts. These parts add up admirably in Walker's incisively raw script, the ensemble's fearless talents, the designers' daring inventiveness, and director Di Monaco's bold leadership."
– Broad Street Review;
"On the Rocks has a voice and knows how to use it. They don’t just flirt with disaster—they throw their arms around the strange and lick its face. Stay up past your bedtime, grab a six pack and give yourself over."
"[Di Monaco and Walker] are distinguished by their fierce intelligence and understanding of theatrical tropes, which they gleefully deconstruct in well-made plays that are simultaneously freewheeling and narratively sound."
