"Well-crafted performances, tight direction and cleverly devised, if macabre, script makes "Your Lithopodion" a killer show."

A serial killer attempts to reform and becomes the founder of Serial Killers Anonymous, which totally wrecks his marriage.
It’s a dark, don’t-bring-your-kids comedy about boredom, dysfunction, community, murder and gazebos. It explores how individuals see themselves and how they hope to be seen. This play is all about veneer, and the chance to laugh at the basest impulses of American culture, as the killer and his equally unhinged wife search for the most questionable kinds of happiness. Like the couple themselves, there are profound problems just under the surface of the play, quickly revealed as the show jolts the audience along an unstable, fragmented narrative of dysfunction, family, and 12-step programs. This nontraditional work pretends towards psychological realism, just as the characters are pretending towards hum-drum domesticity.
